Mrs. Adams 1st Grade - Welcome!

 A Little About Me

     Although my family was not a military one, I have lived in various places around the United States.  I was born a Yankee from New Jersey.  I have a wonderful husband and three fabulous grown sons with two terrific daughters-in-law.  Our family is growing, as the youngest son is engaged to a peach of a girl.  We are also expecting our first grandchild in the new year! 

      As a young adult, I was a pastry chef.  I enjoyed being a full-time mom until my youngest son entered school.  Not wanting to go back to my former career, I attended Winthrop University in South Carolina and received my Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education.  Two months after graduating, our family left our small town moved to Colorado Springs.  I accepted a teaching position at Douglass Valley Elementary, where I have been happily teaching for 16 years.  I taught for Kindergarten for 9 years, then "graduated" to First Grade.  I love what I do and get tremendous satisfaction from playing such an important role in the growth of DVE's amazing students!  In addition, I feel extremely honored to serve the families who so selflessly serve our country. 

      When I am not working, I like to dance, garden, read, and enjoy time with family and friends.
