Hello! My name is Michiko Archuleta. I have been with Adams 12 Five Star Schools for the past five years. 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 elementary school students, I taught one year at a charter school in kindergarten and 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 my fourth year in third grade! I am so thrilled to continue my relationships with my students and their families as we inquire on ways that we can become global 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. Last year I became a grandmother to three wonderful grandchildren and life hasn't slowed down one bit since then! When we are not spending time with family, you might see us walking our two dogs at Carpenter Park or we might be at a local car show where we are looking for ideas on how we will restore our '72 Chevy Nova.
This year I am looking forward to learning new things with my students and fellow educators. I am so thrilled to get to know everyone and to have this opportunity to work at MCEwhere I feel supported as a lifelong learner!
