Ms. Hartley - Kindergarten

Welcome to Ms. Hartley's
Kindergarten Class

    I am very excited to have the opportunity to teach your child in Kindergarten at Redstone Elementary!  I love the excitement that goes along with being a kindergarten teacher and seeing the children learn and grow every day in every way! 
    This will be my 20th year teaching and my 11th year in Douglas County.  I have taught in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Minnesota and Colorado where we chose to stay and raise our family.  Teaching is a strong passion of mine and I love being in the classroom with the children!
    When I am not teaching or planning fun things for us to do at school.... I love spending time with my family and friends, especially outside enjoying all Colorado has to offer. I have a daughter, Emily, who is in 12th grade at Rock Canyon High School and a son, Parker, who is a freshman at Colorado Mesa University.  Our family also consists of Lucy (gray calico rescue) and Domino (black lab rescue) who you may see me out with, taking long walks, while I listen to Audible books.  
    Side note, since I am asked a lot, my name came from the tv show Family Affair (my family has called me Buffy since birth) and I am not a vampire slayer :)
    I am looking forward to a WONDERFUL year with you and your child!  Kindergarten is such a magical time and I am blessed to be on this exciting journey with your little one.   Thank you for sharing them with me!
