Meet Your Teachers   
Sharon Newcomer, Lead Teacher Little Pups A
I am a mother of 4 wonderful children, and Grandma to 4 precious grandchildren. I have been teaching for over 20 years and Pre K is my favorite age to teach. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Development and Child Studies from Colorado State University.
I have lived in Colorado most of my life and love all the state has to offer. I enjoy hiking and skiing and love to travel.

Jacinda Jacinto, Teacher's Assistant
I have been working in early childhood education for 6 years. This is my 3rd year working for Little Pups and I absolutely love it here. When I am not at Coyote Creek I attend classes at Metropolitan State University of Denver. In my free time I like to wakeboard and go camping with my family. I also love going to concerts with my friends.

Lunch Menus are posted on the parent information board and sent home at the beginning of each month.
