Hello. My name is Ms. Mary Maydew. I am starting my 16th year of teaching in Special Education, fourteen of which have been in Adams 12. I received my Bachelors Degree from St. Mary's College in Michigan and my Masters Degree in Special Education from the University of Northern Colorado. My teaching career began as an SSN teacher. After eight years, I transferred into working with special needs students with moderate learning needs, and have just returned to SSN at Rocky Mountain. Although I have taught in elementary, middle and most recently high school, my favorite students to teach are those in grades K-5 because they are so eager to learn and they love school! I have a very artistic 23 year-old daughter named Jennifer. She recently graduated from Colorado State University and has just started her first teaching job as a middle school art teacher in Brooklyn, New York! I grew up in the beautiful state of Michigan and love to travel there as often as possible to visit my very large family and my favorite parts of the state. Rocky Mountain Elementary is a great school and I am proud to be part of this AMAZING staff! I am also very honored to have the opportunity to work with your children and will strive hard to make it one of their best learning and growing years ever!
