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!

Hello! My name is, Christine Parsons. I am a new member, of the Vanguard Classical School family! I am currently an Educational Assistant in first grade. It is an honor and a joy, to be here working with our students, families and staff. I have various credentials, including my Colorado Early Childhood Education License. I love spending time with my family and friends, as well as singing/performing with my band, ‘58 Fury!

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!
