Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Amy Applegate

Hello! I was born and raised in Wyoming and I have taught there the last 12 years. I am so excited to now be teaching in Colorado and to be joining Meeker Elementary! I have taught preschool through 3rd grade and I have my Bachelor's in Elementary Education and my Master's in Curriculum and Instruction. I believe in teaching with a collaborative, hands-on approach. The classroom will include teaching to the whole child and will focus on the strengths of individual students. Learning should be fun and engaging, while the students feel safe and comfortable. The school wide Leader in Me program will be implemented to help create a well-rounded classroom! 

I communicate through an app called Bloomz. On this app, I can send you updates through pictures, reminders, and messages. Details of how to access this app will be given at the beginning of the school year. You can also reach me through email at 

Homework will include a weekly reading log, along with some other reading and math activities/worksheets. The packet will be sent home on Monday and will be returned on Friday. Homework will be used for review and practice only and no new, unknown instruction will be given through it. 

Beside working with students, I also have a passion for animals and dogs. I currently have one 3 year old dog, named Vayda. We are enjoying living here so far, with my boyfriend, a Colorado native. I like the outdoors and to explore new things. I am thrilled to start this new adventure of working with 1st graders at Meeker Elementary!
