Mrs. Scarpella's Professional and Personal Info
Welcome to another school year! My name is Colleen Scarpella, and I am the Library Media Specialist at High Plains Elementary. I attended Wright State University in Ohio where I earned a B. S. in Early Childhood Education with a Reading Endorsement in 2005 and spent several years honing my classroom management skills and educational philosophy as a substitute teacher in my hometown. After completing my M. Ed. in Library Media with Wright State in 2010, I was eager to get out into the field to teach and inspire students to be life-long learners and was ecstatic to receive an offer to be the Library Media Specialist at Mesa Elementary in Fountain, CO immediately after graduation. My family and I love living in Colorado and currently reside in Monument enjoying the mountains and low humidity.
I enjoy organizing, practicing and teaching yoga, eating homemade Paleo-friendly chocolate mousse, watching the brillance of Joss Whedon TV, dancing to tween pop readio, and most of all reading. I adore non-fiction because it helps me be a better person, wife, and mother, and I love fiction because it takes me to places and situations that I have never before imagined. I am so thrilled to be a part of the lives of the students and guide them to the person they are to become!
