Mrs. Whitney Apodaca

Hi everyone,

My name is Whitney Apodaca and I am very excited for the school year!  I am an 8th grade Social Studies teacher. This is my 13th year at HMS and my 16th year teaching. I love teaching U.S. history because it is my favorite topic and is so relevant to us as Americans. I plan to have a lot of fun exploring our nation this school year!

I have lived in Colorado Springs for 20 years and love to spend time with my family, husband Aaron, daughter Quinn, (10 years) and son Bennett (6 years) in our beautiful state.  I also spend my time cooking and cheering on my favorite team, the Denver Nuggets.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me on here or email me- whitney.apodaca@d49.org. I look forward to hearing from you!
