Mahvush Ansar has moved around but for the past 20 years Colorado has been home for her. She has a Masters in Elementary Education from CU Denver. This is her second year as a Kindergarten teacher at Wheeling. Before teaching at Wheeling, she taught kindergarten at Adams 14 and in Dubai. Her favorite part of teaching at Wheeling is the community and the school culture. As an Explorer, she loves exploring different cultures and cuisines through travel and blogging . When she is not teaching she is spending time travelling, hiking or fishing with her husband and three children.
My name is Daisy Luevanos and I am a Kindergarten teacher at Wheeling. I always knew I wanted to become a teacher and I am now living the dream. I love watching students grow and I am determined to help students reach their goals. It is extremely rewarding watching students learn each and every day. I have two boys of my own; one is 2 and one is 8 years old. I love spending time with my family and being outdoors (when the weather is decent)! I enjoy going on hikes and being surrounded by the beautiful mountains. I also love reading and learning! I show my students that I am a lifelong learner and hope they are too!
My name is Jessica Medina. I graduated from CSU, Pueblo, CO with a Bachelors Degree in Social Work in May 1997, then went on to receive my Elementary Education Teaching License in November 2010. Prior to teaching Kindergarten at Wheeling Elementary, I taught English Language Learners for 9 years at Granada Public School. This will be my fourth year teaching Kindergarten. I have a 19-year-old daughter named Samantha, who graduated from high school last year. In my spare time I like to cook, read, listen to music, and spend time with friends and family.
