Mrs. C. Michaela Teres

3rd and 6th Resource Teacher

Welcome to Bear Creek Elementary! I am so excited to be here working with the students, staff, parents, and community of Monument. This is my 15th year as a Special Education teacher. I taught for 9 years in California with Chula Vista Elementary School District as a Mild/Moderate Special Education Teacher before moving to Colorado with my family in 2015. I have been with the Bear Creek team as a Special Education teacher since the 2015/2016 school year in several different roles but for the last three I have supported 3rd and 6th grades as a Resource teacher and I am so excited to support your child and family this year!

I believe that each child is an individual of great worth. Everyone has areas of strength and areas of need and it is our job as teachers to utilize those strengths and find a way to use them to bridge those areas of need. By building upon each student’s strengths we help to create a sense of confidence and pride in themselves as learners. This in turn fosters the love of learning which they will carry with them throughout their lives. I look forward to meeting you and working with your child. Please feel free to contact me at any time and together we will make this a fabulous year of social, emotional, and educational growth for your child!
