Hello! My name is Michiko Archuleta. I have been with Adams 12 Five Star Schools since 2015. My first year, I served as a Boettcher Teacher Resident where I enjoyed working with fourth grade and first grade students. Before falling in love with intermediate elementary school students, I taught one year at a charter school in kindergarten and over ten years in private and federally funded preschools. Most of my preschool years were served in the Head Start community, where I enjoyed working closely with my students and families as a teacher and family resource provider. I am so happy and excited to be at McElwain for another year in third grade! Each year, I am more excited to continue my relationships with my students, colleges, and families as we become life long learners. In addition to a rich school life, I also have a wonderful family with whom I also enjoy learning and growing with each day.
