D20 Digital Learning Coach Model

*** Warning - this is a "proud mom moment" and props to our school and district as well. I've said many times how our school and teachers have met our boys where they are in their education. The oldest has been participating with our TAG teacher for years. And while our youngest has struggled at points in math, they recommended Math Club to help bring his skills up to par. Both have seen vast improvments, and we so appreciate how the teachers and staff see their needs and meet them in that place. Recently our older boy, Cole completed a Tinker CAD program at school, encorporating math and fractions (ratios) to create a 3D model on-line. His choice was a robot, but it can be used to create other 3D building drawings and probably so much more. After his project he was asked to participate in a D20 board meeting where he and other students would display their math / technology projects to individual board members to show how they use technology with math in the school. This is all part of a movement by the district to have a Digital Learning Coach in schools. We all know we are in the age of technology... I can't believe how things have changed since we were in college in the late '90s, let alone the past couple years' of advances.

Our librarian, TAG coordinator, and TAG teacher are helping advance this DLC model for all schools. Eight elementary schools in the district participated initially in the program, to help model how a DLC can help students at all levels. It was so fun to see Cole and his TAG classmate present to a board member, but also to see other schools with sudents as young as kindergarden displaying technology projects to board members. I love living in and seeing a district and community that sees value in similar programs. We want to thank Mrs. Knox, Ms. MacLean, and Ms. Hullings of Discovery Canyon Campus elementary for their participation, encouragement, and forward thinking. We'd like to also thank the entire school board and principals of Academy School District 20!

 And of course, well done Cole, we love you and are so proud of you! (sorry, I had to)

1201 Valley View Dr, Larkspur, CO

I was SO excited to go on this listing, for many reasons... I love hiking Spruce Mountain, I love Douglas County in general, and this was a personal referral to me! I was a little concerned about location, and surprised I got there so quickly up through Palmer Lake. And when I got there, even more excited. I can't wait for you to see this great house!! Just about anyone will enjoy this fantastic foothills location, with easy commutes to Denver and Colorado Springs. This is just a couple minutes north of Palmer Lake, 15 minutes from Northgate Blvd and 45 minutes straight up Hwy 105 & Santa Fe into Littleton. This open ranch plan is nestled on a curved lot for amazing privacy, plus sweet front views down into the Spruce Mountain Valley! Trees and wildlife abound from almost every space in this house.

This listing is personal for me.  I sold the house to these sellers back in 2006.  Over the years they have become more than clients.  They are friends.  Their home is lovely.  It sits on a 1/3 acre lot at the end of a cul-de-sac and is tastefully landscaped including auto sprinklers.   The home features 5 bedrooms, 3 baths and over 2,100 total square feet.  It includes rich hardwood floors, new vinyl windows, updated kitchen with hickory cabinets and ceramic tile counters, air conditioning, covered rear deck, a workshop, storage shed and even a new roof!  And this home is just one block from the neighborhood park!
