This week’s teacher spotlight is the Las Animas Elementary School fourth grade team of Ashley Montes and Cody Hines.

Mrs. Montes has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Interdisciplinary Studies from Adams State College. Her favorite thing about teaching is the bond she shares with students.  She loved having her first official class for two years - Go, Sophomores! Mrs. Montes also enjoys learning new ideas and practices and growing her mind!

Mr. Hines has a BA in Sports Management from Southern Nazarene University.  His favorite thing about teaching is having previous students come up and tell him how they miss being in his classroom!
