Handley, Vanessa

Hey, ya’ll! I’m a small town gal who moved from Michigan to Denver looking for a city full of action and adventure. I have always wanted to be a teacher, even back to when I was 5 years old when I would play ‘Parent-Teacher Conferences’ with my Grandmother. This will be my third year teaching English Language Arts in Colorado. My passion for being in the classroom is giving this generation an opportunity to be heard and a voice for what they believe matters through writing, discussion, and reading novels with powerful themes. If you were to find me somewhere that should not include a book, it would definitely be exploring or hiking our beautiful city with my husband and my little pup’ Cooper.
