Hello! I am Jeanne Easton and I have been at Vanguard since we first opened the East Campus in 2014. I taught kindergarten for three years before moving solely into the role of special education teacher in the primary grades. I love working with these young learners as they begin their educational journey!
I was raised in Paradise, California, but have lived in Colorado for over 20 years. I have four boys who are the best thing in my life and my reason for everything. My youngest son has Down syndrome and was my motivation to obtain my Master's in Early Childhood Special Education from University of Northern Colorado after graduating from Brigham Young University-Idaho.
I enjoy all things Italian, as I used to live there, and am fluent in the language. I also love to travel, play the piano, do calligraphy and watch our beautiful Colorado sunsets.
I love Vanguard and all the staff, students and families that I have been able to get to know over the years!
Hello! My name is Nikki Robertson, and I am the 4th-6th grade, special education teacher. I have a bachelors degree in theatre and Asian studies from Colorado State University, and a masters in Special Education from the University of Northern Colorado. When I am not teaching, I enjoy figure skating, reading, watching movies, and dancing. My favorite dance styles are breaking and hip-hop. An interesting fact about me is that I lived in Japan for 3 years, and can speak Japanese.Email
I am a native of Colorado as I was born in Boulder, but grew up in rural Eastern Colorado. I did live in Kansas for a few months a number of years ago, but returned quickly to Colorado. I am beginning my 14th year working in education. I completed an Associate’s program at AIMS Community College in Greeley, CO in Elementary Education with an emphasis on English Language Acquisition. I also have a Bachelor’s degree from Notre Dame College in South Euclid, Ohio as a Mild/Moderate Special Education Interventionist. I was a paraprofessional for 10 years before completing my degree as a teacher. I am married and have three amazing adult children of my own. We spend as much time as possible together now that so many schedules keep us moving in different directions. We have a dog named Cooper and a chinchilla named Mouse, but growing plants seems to be out of my field of abilities. Like many of us, the remote aspect of our public education system is new to us all, but I did complete all of my courses with Notre Dame College through an online platform. I will be here to help navigate through everything that comes our way.Email
