We need your help collecting photos for the yearbook! This has been such a historic year, and like everything else in our lives, we've had to adapt our way of doing things. Let's capture the memories for our yearbook in a fun and creative way. We're looking for pictures. Photos may include: students doing school related work in their homes, activites not related to school work (riding bikes, sidewalk chalk, outside activites, game night with the family, etc..) Email photos to your child's teacher!

Ms. Curry

I attended the University of Northern Colorado, and have my Master's degree in Elementary Education. I have taught at Vanguard for four years, two years in Kindergarten and I am excited to be starting my second year teaching first grade. In my spare time, I love running and reading. I really look forward to teaching your students!

Bio coming soon!


Ms. Dome

My name is Chelsea Dome. This will be my 4th year as a 1st grade teacher at Vanguard. I’m a native to Colorado and absolutely love living here! I grew up in Castle Rock, and I recently moved to Parker. I went to the University of Northern Colorado and received my degree in Elementary Education. I have always wanted to be a teacher and help my students grow as lifelong learners. I have a very large family; most of whom live in Colorado and I enjoy spending time with them on the weekends. I also like to swim, hike and dance. I’m looking forward to a great school year!

1C Educational Assistant

Ms. Sandoval

I bring experience of five wonderful years at Vanguard; two of these years as a paraprofessional. I am now embarking on my third year as an Educational Assistant in 1st grade. In my spare time I enjoy hiking, power walking, and watching movies. I enjoy being outside and I also enjoy cooking. Even with all my hobbies, I spend the majority of my time with my wonderful 15-year-old daughter, Emily. Emily was a student at Vanguard Classical School from kindergarten to the 8th grade. Lucky for me, I have been able to spend four of those in the same building with her. I am fortunate enough to have been able to work with some wonderful children and I really enjoy helping them grow. I love working with younger children. At this age, kids are very curious and love school. They are also experiencing many of their own “firsts” and it is fun to be a part of it!
