Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Laurie Hildebrand
I am starting my 33rd and last year of teaching. I have spent all but one of these years in Falcon School District 49. Stetson Elementary has been my home for 31 years! After receiving my bachelor's degree from the University of Colorado at Boulder in history and elementary education, I went on to receive my master's degree from the University of Northern Colorado in educational media. During these 32 years, I taught kindergarten and 2nd grade and served as the school librarian. I am finishing my career as Stetson's technology teacher - the position I have held here for 10 years. It has been an honor and privelege to have been associated with Stetson. Teaching former student's children and now teaching alongside one my former students makes me so happy!!! The time has flown by!
I have been married for almost 28 years and have lived in Colorado my whole life. I grew up in Calhan - only 35 miles from Colorado Springs. So this has always been my home. We don't have any children, but over the years, my students here have been "my children". I enjoy traveling, papercrafting, scrapbooking, fishing, hiking and reading.
Having volunteers in my classroom is always encouraged. Once you have been through the District volunteer process, please come see me in the technology classroom. You might even learn something new. Believe me, your "techie" children teach me almost as much as I teach them!!!
