Teacher: Jeanne Carmichael
School: Berthoud Elementary
We moved to Berthoud in August of last year right before school started. My daughter, Anya, had a rough kindergarten with a move in the middle of the year to a new house and bigger school, so she was a bit hesitant to start 1st grade. Mrs. Carmichael has been so nurturing and loving while being an exceptional educator that she has helped her thrive while going through some very tough transitions, which resulted in her falling behind in her reading. Thanks to the extra effort Mrs. Carmichael put forth, not only does she love school, but is really starting to become a solid reader. I also spend time volunteering in the classroom, so I can say from personal experience how much Mrs. Carmichael adores every child in her class and goes that extra mile to make sure they all feel loved and that they are all getting what they need to succeed in 1st grade.
