3rd Grade

Hi! I’m  Mrs.Hurst.

I will be your child’s 4th grade math, science and social studies teacher this year. I have been teaching in DPS since 2010. This is going to be my second year at DCIS Fairmont. Furthermore, I will serve our school as a Senior Team Lead, coaching and supporting teachers.

I received my Bachelors degree in Marketing and Finance through the Metropolitan State University of Denver.  After several years of working in financial services, I obtained my Teaching License, and first Master’s degree in Early Childhood Education from the University of Colorado Denver. A handful of years later, I secured my second Master’s degree in Educational Leadership, also from the University of Colorado Denver. 

I’m originally from Chicago, Illinois. I relocated to Denver 19 years ago. I met my husband in Denver and we have a 5-year old son. We enjoy all things outdoors; hiking, biking, and cross country skiing to name a few. Our true passions include traveling to other countries during the summer months and indulging in new cultures and food.

I’m excited to meet you. It’s going to be a year full of learning, growth, and fun!  I can’t wait to see what the year has in-store for us.
