Mrs. Deanna Skabo

Welcome to Fourth Grade!

I feel very privileged to begin another year at Prairie Winds Elementary. I love teaching fourth grade! Your child and I will build a classroom that is a safe and comfortable learning environment where kids can be themselves, take academic and social risks, and have fun too. Over the past 28 years, my students have described me as firm, fair, and fun; I hope to live up to that reputation for many years to come.

I am proud to say that I am a Colorado native. I was born and raised in Colorado Springs where I still live with my husband, Kirk and my yellow Labrador, Baxter. I love living in Colorado because I can participate in so many outdoor activities all year long. I love to mountain and road bike, hike, ski, do yoga, and walk the Garden of the Gods with my mom and Baxter.

I earned a B.A. from UCCS and an M.A. from the University of Phoenix, but I know I learned the most about teaching from spending so much time in my mom's classroom while I was growing up. Thanks, Mom! 

The best way to reach me is to email me at

Let's make this year great! I look forward to seeing all of you in August.
