Hi! My name is Andrea Nachtrieb, and I am so excited to be teaching Upper Elementary at the Juniper School. I was born in Colorado and am a 5th generation native to our great state. I am married to a tall guy named Matt and we have two sweet kids: Adaira, who is 9 and in 4rd Grade and Boden, who is 6 and in 1st Grade. We love living, hiking, camping, paddling and playing in Durango! I started my career as a middle school math and science teacher and moved to elementary when my daughter was born. This is my 8th year teaching upper elementary, where I love getting kids excited about math and science. This year we will explore government, the human body and as well as diving into fractions and division-- it will be hard work, but it will be fun work! We will take risks together, care about each other, and have a lot of fun learning and continuing to grow! Here’s to a great year ahead!
