Welcome to 3rd Grade with Ms. Schenk!

Hello parents and students!
I am excited to jump into a fun filled year with all of you. We have many great things to look forward to in 3rd grade. It will be a year jam packed full of creativity, exploration and growth. I can't wait to get to know each and every one of you, but first here's a little bit about me.
All About Ms. Schenk
I am a Colorado native. I grew up in Eldorado Springs Canyon outside of Boulder.  I am very close to my mom, dad and my brother, Aaron.  I moved to the Durango/Bayfield area in 2002 to attend Fort Lewis College. The 2016-17 school year will be my tenth year of teaching. I have taught 2nd grade, 3rd grade, 5th grade and K-5 interventions. I even taught on the Island of Roatan, Honduras! 
I live in Durango with my partner Dan and our springer spaniel, Odin. I love to relax by reading a book or playing with clay on my pottery wheel. I love spending time outdoors riding my mountain bike, hiking, camping, gardening and snowboarding. I also love to travel and explore other cultures.
