Ms. Nancy Roberts
I am very excited to be part of Palmer Lake Elementary's tremendous team of teachers as the Gifted & Talented Facilitator. I previously worked as an aeronautical engineer building flight management systems for the A320, A340, and B777 commercial aircraft. My family gladly agreed to relocate from the "Big Oven", Phoenix, AZ. to my native Colorado, where I pursued my love of teaching. I earned my M.A. in Education from UCCS in 2005 and taught math and science. I have worked with wonderful and wacky gifted children since 2008 and love their curiosity and many inquiries. I have been a lead team member of "eleSTEMary" since 2012; eleSTEMary is a grass roots Pikes-peak coalition of volunteer teachers, whose goal is to increase STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) learning in our elementary classrooms. I love to garden, hike, cook, read and spend as much of my free time outdoors, especially with family and friends, wondering and wandering about the natural world.
