Hello! My name is Amy Numedahl and I am SO EXCITED to welcome your child to second grade! I have been teaching at Bear Creek since 2013, and have been teaching in the public schools since 1996. My greatest passion is teaching second grade and I am blessed to work with a fantastic group of students and parents that make my job so wonderful.
My husband and I moved to the area in 1998, and our family has grown with addition of 5 children, dogs, cats, birds, and guinea pigs. All of our children attend school in LP, and most weekends you will find us supporting their various endeavours or escaping to the mountain trails, campgrounds, or ski slopes. We love Colorado and all that it has to offer!
I earned my teaching certification and Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education, Early Childhood Education, and Special Education from Iowa State University and hold a Master of Arts in Teaching from Colorado College, as well as certificates in Autism Education and Literacy Education. I am currently working toward my National Board Certification.
Second grade is filled with fabulous learning experiences in literacy, animal studies, force and motion, weather, hands on math activities, writing across genres, and history/civics/economics and geography projects. My classroom is filled with creativity, friendship, curiosity, and positive interactions. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at any time - we can find the answer together!
