Degrees and Certifications:
This will be my fifth year of teaching at Madison and my fourth year as a second grade teacher. Before I began my career, I graduated from the University of Northern Colorado with a bachelor's degree in Interdisciplinary Studies (Elementary Education). I was then very blessed to get a job right away at Madison in January of 2015 as a reading interventionist, and have been an eagle ever since! I am now currently working on getting my master's degree from Grand Canyon University in the area of Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL).

Hi Eagles and Welcome,
I'm Miss Whitaker and I am extremely excited to be at Madison Elementary for the 2019-2020 school year!
It is my goal to make this year the very best for you and your child. If you would like to volunteer in our classroom, please let me know! I love having parents visit to see their scholar learn and grow. Also, be on the look out for important papers that come home with your child as I will do my part to make sure you are always aware of what's going on at school or in our classroom. And, if you are not yet connected to the ClassDojo app to recieve messages from me, I can get you the information you need to sign up.
I very much look forward to partnering with you throughout the school year. I want this to be as rewarding of an academic experience for your student as possible. Should you need anything, or if you ever have any questions, comments, or concerns regarding your child's education, feel free to reach out using my contact information listed.
I sincerely appreciate everything you do to help me support your pupil on this journey. It has been my dream to be a teacher ever since I was a little girl and it is my absolute passion to work with children. I am so lucky to have the privilege of falling in love with Madison families every day. It is such an honor to be your child's teacher!
