First grade Hero's

Welcome to First Grade! We are all Superheroes!

As I start my second year here at Mountain View Elementary (12th year of teaching overall), I am excited to be teaching first grade and working with your children! Throughout my years of teaching, I focused on kindergarten through second grade and have my Master's Degree in Elementary Education. I consider myself to be a life long learner and look forward to being the best teacher I can be for your children!

I am a true Colorado native and have lived in the state my whole life. I absolutely love it here! I live with my wife, my two daughters, and my two giant dogs in Centennial. Life is definitely not boring in the Haug Household! My oldest daughter is in Little Cubs this year and it has been fun getting to commute with her and have her see where Daddy works. Although many of you know how chaotic life can be with two small children, I am thankful for my family everyday.

In addition to teaching and hanging out with my family, I love Colorado sports teams - yes, even the Rockies. Watching the Avalanche win the Stanley Cup this year was great and I am hopeful and optimistic about the Broncos for the upcoming football season! I also enjoy listening to Audiobooks and try and get in at least one book a month. Having grown up in southern Colorado, I developed early on an appreciation for getting outside to hike, fish, or watch the leaves change and enjoy the beauty of our state.

As we continue through this year, I look forward to working with you and your child on their educational journey in first grade!
