About Me

Dear Parents,

Hello my name is Mrs. Embrey and I am going to be your child's second grade teacher, this year!!! I look forward to seeing you at our "Back to School Night on Tuesday, August 7th between 5-7pm, where your child can meet me, see our new classroom and drop off his/her supplies. Please put your child's name on his/her folders, composition books, scissors, ruler, clip board, colored pencil box, crayon box and pencil box. Sharpened pencils, dry erase markers, erasers, glue sticks, notebook paper, sticky notes, baggies and kleenex will be shared among all of the students, so names do not need to be put on these items.

For those of you who have not yet met me, I would like to share a little bit about myself. My husband, Joe, and I have two daughters. Our oldest daughter, Sara, has been a social worker for the last 5 years. We are so proud of her as she continues her career in child welfare as a Child Protection Systems Analyst for the Colorado Child Protection Ombudsman Office, in Denver. We are, also, very proud of our younger daughter, Kristen, who played competitive ice hockey for the Australian Women's Ice Hockey League in Sydney, Australia, this past year. Her current plans are to stay on for a second year. We miss her terribly, but are excited to see her when she makes a quick visit to the United States, this fall! My family has lived in Highlands Ranch, Colorado for 18 years, after moving here from Sterling, Virginia.  We have two cats named Bella and Bo, and my older daughter has a seven and a half year old lab mix named Blue, who has one blue eye and one brown eye. When growing up, I was fortunate to have lived and attended schools in Italy, Germany and Hong Kong. Being exposed to these different cultures was an incredible and invaluable education and experience. I have been in the education field for over 25 years. I taught preschool through 2nd grade in Virginia. Since moving to Colorado, I have taught 6th grade, 1st grade, substitute taught K-6th grade and am now heading into my 5th year of teaching 2nd grade, in the Douglas County School District. In my free time, I love to travel, cook, try new restaurants and spend time with my family. 

I am very excited to work with your child this year!!! I can't wait to help him or her continue on his or her journey in becoming life-long learners!

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me at betsy.embrey@dcsdk12.org.
