Introduction from Teachers

Greetings parents!

Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! We are thrilled to introduce you to the Student Support Team at Buffalo Ridge. We are looking forward to a productive year filled with excitement, exploration and learning.


Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP)
~ Hannah Huggins

This is my first year at BRE and I feel so lucky to get to work with such a great team and group of kiddos. I received my Bachelor's and Master's degrees  from The University of Northern Colorado (Go Bears!). In addition to working in the schools, I've also worked in a private practice setting with children who had a variety of different needs. I love my job and have a passion for helping people communicate. I've lived in Colorado my whole life and enjoy being outside, spending time with my family and friends, eating out and cheering on the Broncos & Penn State! 

 

Moderate Needs Special Education Teacher ~ Jennifer Romero

I hope that you and your children have had a fantastic summer break and that you are off to a great start for the 2017-2018 school year! I am looking forward to starting my fourth year here at BRE and to having another successful year. I have been in DCSD for 7 years and I have worked with children of varying ages and grade levels. I look forward to hearing about all of the wonderful adventures that your children experienced this summer. I am at BRE Monday-Friday. The best way to reach me is by email at Jennifer.Romero@dcsdk12.org. Please feel free to reach out to me if you need anything.

 

Significant Support Needs teacher (SSN) ~ Amelia Graser

I have been working with students for more than 19 in years and taught in Los Angeles for 11 years. I grew up and went to school in California and moved to Colorado in 2001. I am married and have two sons. I have a child with special needs, so I understand the concerns of parents. I’m right there with you, wanting the very best for all children! I love teaching and believe in lifelong learning. I will be at BRE Monday-Friday.

 

School Psychologist ~ Chantel Albert

I am entering my fourth year at BRE. I have also worked as a school psychologist in a large urban school district and have experience as a community-based children’s mental health case manager. I spent the summer enjoying time with my family in my home state of Maine, visiting Texas, and doing a number of home improvement projects. I will be at BRE on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays.

 

Occupational Therapist (OTR/L)~ Kristen Cornella

I have been an occupational therapist for 17 years, 10 of which have been in Douglas County Schools. I spent 7 years working in the inpatient rehabilitation setting at the VA Hospital and Craig Hospital, before transitioning to the school setting. I worked at BRE for several years when I started with DCSD and look forward to returning! I spent the summer moving to Highlands Ranch, which was super fun!! We are excited to be in Highlands Ranch and look forward to the coming school year. I was also able to enjoy a vacation in Boston and Cape Cod, as well as Durango for a soccer tournament. I will be at BRE on Wednesdays and Thursdays.

Sincerely,
