Mrs. Mitchell


Ms. Gauthier

Last year was my third year teaching fourth grade at Vanguard Classical School, and I am so excited to be continuing my employment here this year! I am currently earning my M.A. in Teaching Diverse Learners with a dual endorsement in Special Education and Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Ed. In my spare time, I love playing music, learning new things, traveling, and spending lots of quality time with my two daughters. I absolutely adore the community at Vanguard, and I look forward to another FANTASTIC year! I hope that you become part of my classroom community!


Ms. Welch

My name is Jennifer Welch and I'm proud to be a Colorado native! The 2020-2021 school year will be my 5th year at Vanguard (but my 12th year teaching), and I love teaching 4th grade! I earned my Bachelor’s degree at Metropolitan State University of Denver, and my Master’s degree in Elementary Education at University of Phoenix. I have three amazing children who keep me very busy, but in the little free time I do have, I enjoy spending time in the mountains and playing with my dogs.

4th Grade Educational Assistant

Mrs. McKinney

My name is Hannah Mckinney. I'm so excited to join the 4th grade team. I've worked with kids in a variety of ways. From the classical education environment, to overseas in Haiti. During my free time I love to paint, write music, or read. I look forward to traveling on the occasional vacation or overseas trip. One day I hope to visit Scotland! I'm beyond excited to spend time with the students to watch them develop, learn, and grow over the year.
