Wallisa Stearman here, and I am so excited to be living in Colorado and teaching at D49. I began my career in 2001 and I'm still excited when each new school year comes around and this year is sizing up to be an outstanding one.
I graduated from Central Oklahoma University, of Edmond, Oklahoma, with a bachelor's in Elementary Education. I have earned my endorsement for Crosscultural Language and Academic Development from UC Berkerly, California. I yearn to learn new ideas about teaching our greatest national asset, our students.
I taught in Oklahoma for 12 years, California for 7 and a short stop in Texas. Relocating here was the best move we ever made. My husband is from the Littleon area, while I'm a southern girl from Oklahoma. My husband and I have two grown children, our son is in Mississippi and our daughter has just moved to Colorado. According to our kids, Mark and I have replaced them with two very lively Corgis.
In my spare time I love to hand make quilts for family members and sew whatever tickles my fancy. I like reading as many novels as possible during my vacation time and traveling.

We believe that all students will need a snack each day due to the fact that our lunch is from 1:10 to 1:30 this year.
We want our students to maintain a good learning brain, so healthy snacks are the ticket. Healthy snacks that help your child are: fresh fruits, vegetables, yogurt and whole grain crackers are a few.
