Thank you for visiting Elizabeth Mehmen's First Grade Page!

So who is Mrs. Mehmen?

I have been teaching children for five years and adults for eight years.  I received my B.S. in Business with a concentration in Marketing from Colorado State University.  I began my career as a corporate trainer and store manager for OfficeMax.  After eight years in corporate America, I began searching for a family friendly career change.  I decided to obtain a Masters degree in Elementary Education. I then began my career in education at Bergen Meadow Elementary.  I began at Bergen Meadow as a student teacher and never left!  I have had the opportunity to teach first grade for the past six years.  In that time I have received endorcments in teaching Lingustically Diverse Learners, Gifted and Talented Learners, and Students with Special Needs. 

While establishing my career, I also began a family.  I have been dating my husband for 17 years.  He also went to Colorado State University and he is an engineer for the City of Lakewood. Seven years ago, we made the greatest decision of our lives and had a child.  Her name is Elise Noel and she will be attending second grade at Bergen Meadow this year.  

Besides my family and my classroom kids, I have two passions in life, I love hiking and the COLORADO ROCKIES!  GO ROCKIES!!!
