Mrs. Lara Nield

Hello! My name is Mrs. Nield and I am so excited to be teaching Third Grade! We are going to have the most amazing year of learning and growing together. This will be my 7th year of teaching and my 2nd year at McAuliffe. I was born and raised right here in Greeley, and earned my Bachelor's Degree from UNC. Then I spent 13 years after college living in many places! I have lived in Arizona, Texas, Washington, and Florida before coming back home to Colorado two years ago. I have two children of my own who will be in 4th and 2nd grade at McAuliffe this year. My husband Jon works at Frontier Airlines, and our whole family loves to travel. We are keeping track of the states we have visited, and I only have 9 more to go! How many states have you been to? When I am not busy teaching, I like to spend my time traveling, tent camping, swimming, and competing in triathlon races. I love being in the mountains, and visit Rocky Mountain National Park frequently! This year is going to be an adventure, and I am so excited to be able to do it with you! Welcome to third grade!!!
