Hi! My name is Betty Sand, and this is my sixteenth year teaching second grade at Cotton Creek Elementary School. I have also taught first grade and worked as a substitute teacher in Adams 12 School District. I knew I wanted to be a teacher ever since I fell in love with school when I was in first grade. Providing an enriching environment where children can have fun while learning, is my dream come true. I especially enjoy helping my students develop a passion for knowledge and a desire to challenge themselves. Teaching children is truly a rewarding adventure!
I am originally from Minnesota, and I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Stout in 1980. My husband and I moved to Colorado in 1994, with our four children. Now we are "empty-nesters" and we enjoy spending time with our "grown up" children and our 2 grandchildren.
