Welcome to Mrs. Phelps' classroom webpage! 

Welcome to 3rd grade!  

     I can't wait to get to meet and get to know you and your families!  My name is Merideth Phelps and I've been a teacher for more than 20 years in Oklahoma, Colorado and Texas...the majority of those years as a third grade teacher. I absolutely love working with 3rd graders.  It is such a wonderful age, and we have so many exciting new concepts to explore together.  I am always up for a new adventure and this year will be packed with them.

      My husband and I, along with our 2 dogs, moved back to Colorado last year after  24 years living in Texas.   We have enjoyed exploring Colorado, absolutely adore the cooler weather, and find ourselves  spending most weekends  camping and fishing in the mountains and visiting family around the state.  *My husband grew up in Westminster, so our move is a return home to old stomping grounds for him. 
     Our son, Matt, is a junior at Colorado School of Mines, and our daughter, Kaitlyn and wonderful son-in-law, Andre, are currently stationed in Hohenfels, Germany courtesy of the US Army. 

     I look forward to getting to know each and every one of you and your families.  I am here for your child.  If you have any questions or concerns throughout the year, please contact me.  mwphelps@dcsdk12.org
     I encourage you to be an active participant in your child's education.  I'm always looking for parent volunteers to help in and out of the classroom.
