Mr. Christopher Farrell
Welcome to Mr. Farrell's 5th Grade class! I am excited to be teaching 5th grade this year and working with my students from last year! We are going to have a fantastic year! Feel free to contact me or come in any time to discuss your child and how we are all working together to create the most successful year possible!
I have always known I wanted to be a teacher. I had some amazing teachers in my life, and it is great to give back with the enthusiasm and care I know they had for me. I grew up in New York, and obtained my Early Childhood/Elementary Education degree from the State University of New York - College at Buffalo and have loved every day since. I taught 3 years of 3rd grade in North Carolina before moving to Colorado, a dream I have aspired towards since high school. It is a great teaching opportunity to share with my students that I am doing what I wanted to do for a living, and I am living where I wanted to live for so long! I try to instill in them that if they put their mind to something, anything is possible. I am in my 14th year teaching and my 9th year here at Jackson after teaching two years in Poudre School District. My goal has and will always be to make every student feel successful and achieve at their highest possible level! Learning will be fun, exciting, and rewarding throughout this year! I have the greatest job in the world!
