Janet Matthews – Literacy Instructional Coach


Carrissa Miller – STL and Writing Coach/Intervention
Hi! I’m Mrs. Miller. I have been teaching at Marrama for nine years! My family is originally from England, however I was raised in Colorado. My husband Andrew and I have an almost-two-year-old son and two dogs! When I have free time I love to read and travel, experiencing all life has to offer. Students learn fast that I love the Broncos, food, and chocolate…so stop by anytime!

Aran Nulty – Literacy Intervention

 This is my 8th year as a teacher, my 3rd year in DPS, and my 1st year as an Interventionist. I love teaching 3rd, 4th, and 5th Graders to ask questions and think critically about their world. Some life experiences that inform my teaching: I have been on a member of a Federal jury, completed an ironman, and traveled by bicycle from Mexico to Bolivia. I knit, cook, garden, mom, and (most recently) raise chickens. I have visited 40 states (taught in 4) and 32 countries. I’m so excited to be part of the Marrama team!


Nadine Stokes – ESL

This is my 14th year at Marrama. I have taught 2nd grade at Marrama as well. Working with second language learners is a rewarding experience. I have reared two sons; one who has finished college and one that is completing college who also went to Marrama. When I’m not teaching I enjoy making gift baskets, reading, watching movies, cooking, and traveling.

Vita Haire – Nurse

Hello from the Health Office,

I’m Vita Haire and excited to be the new School Nurse.  I’ve been asked to tell you a little bit about myself.  I’m a retired military spouse and mother of three grown sons.  Due to the opportunities awarded to us thru the US Air Force, I’ve worked in several different areas of nursing.  I also got to meet so many wonderful people from different countries and different cultures. I enjoy working as a team, sharing our talents in order to provide the best that we can.

Sincerely,

Vita
