Love of Country is defined as being devoted to our nation—loving its ideals, honoring its heroes, respecting its past, and working hard for a just and noble future.
Love of Country can also mean 'love your country of origin.' Our student population represents a rich array of cultures and nationalities. This is also a great time to celebrate that!
Even with her flaws, our country is a beautiful place, with amazing potential. Developing a love for our country is how that potential is realized and how the future can be better than the past.

Hello! This will be my first year teaching kindergarten, and I am so excited to
learn and grow with the Vanguard team. I received my teaching degree and
license from Colorado State University - and hope to start my masters in the
next year or two! Though I grew up in Greeley and live in Littleton now, I can
say that I am exceedingly grateful to call Vanguard Classical home. I’m
looking forward to a fun and engaging year!
My name is Andrea Hermosillo. I grew up in a small town in Northern Colorado called Yuma. I moved to Denver a few years ago to continue my education. Currently, I am attending Regis University and I am working towards my Bachelor in Liberal Arts. This is my second year at Vanguard Classical. I am beyond grateful for the students, staff, and families that I have met here. I hope to continue to aide children in developing a love for learning in the years to come!
I am a Colorado native and received a Bachelor's degree in Psychology from the University of Colorado at Denver and received my Master's degree in Elementary Education from the University of Northern Colorado. This is my fourth year as a teacher and I absolutely love it! I look forward to helping children blossom into lifelong learners at Vanguard Classical School.Email
