I'm Joe Tusa, 2nd grade teacher at Cotton Creek! I've been a teacher now for 5 years and this is my first year down in 2nd grade. I'm used to teaching 4th grade but I am very excited for the change of pace working with a younger group! I grew up near Boulder but attended the University of Oregon where I recieved a history degree (which explains I why I love teaching social studies!). Afterwards I moved back to Boulder and got my teaching ceritification at CU-Boulder. I have really found a passion in teaching, the best feeling in the world is creating a community of learners and seeing academic, social, and emotional growth each and every day!
When I'm not teaching you can find my playing all sort of games. I love board games (Catan, Risk, Ticket To Ride, Chess, etc) and lawn games (Spikeball). I also really enjoy sports! Go Broncos and Nuggets!!
I can't wait to see each student and get to work with them to help support their education!
