Hello Third Grade Families! I am excited to be your child's 3rd grade teacher this year! This is my fourth year in 3rd grade after teaching kindergarten for 11 years. This is my 15th year teaching at Sheridan Green.

I have taught 22 years total, with a variety of grades in previous years. Between my earlier years and here at Sheridan Green, I stayed home to raise my children for 9 years.  They both attended Sheridan Green, Mandalay, and Standley Lake High School, but are now young adults and gainfully employed. Time has flown. So believe me when I say… Treasure each day with your child(ren)!!!!!

My family enjoys skiing/boarding, golfing and CU football and basketball events together. We love to travel, hike and eat good seafood as well. I also enjoy scrapbooking and attending musicals. I am passionate about teaching, and my family would consider teaching to be another hobby for me.

I look forward to partnering with you this year, as we bring your child a year of excellent education!

Hello! My name is Jeanine Houck and I will have the pleasure of teaching fourth grade this year at Sheridan Green Elementary.

This will be my seventh year teaching at Jeffco Public Schools. Previously, I have taught fifth and second grade levels. Before teaching elementary students, I developed and instructed science, technology, engineering, and math programs for students of all ages. I earned my bachelor’s degree from the University of Colorado Boulder and my Master’s Degree in Elementary Education from the University of Phoenix.

I was born and raised in Colorado. My family and I enjoy being outside either playing frisbee with our dog, riding bikes, or hiking. Afterwards, we rest while watching a good movie!

In the classroom you will find me to be firm but fair. I am organized and detail oriented. I expect a lot from my students but even more from myself. I embrace the differences in all children and expect my students to do the same. In fourth grade we are a team. We all will need to work together, so that everyone will have an awesome year realizing their talents and begin to set their own goals for achievement.

I am very excited about teaching fourth grade and can’t wait to meet all of you.
