My name is Mary Koudelka.
I was born and raised in Littleton, Colorado. I received my B.S. in Elementary Education from Montana State University in Bozeman, MT. After college, I went back to Colorado to do my student teaching and start my career. I completed my Master’s in Education one year later before starting my family. I have
two children; one who is at Reagan High School and one at Wilderness Oak Elementary. As a family, we love to go camping and spend time together outside. I have been teaching for 21 years and not one of them has been like another. I love teaching and my purpose for teaching is to make sure my students love school and love to learn.
