Mrs. Quini

Hellllllllooooooo Third Graders! Welcome to your 3rd grade homeroom class! My name is Mrs. Quini ( say zucchini, and then take off the "zu"!). I am so excited to be here at Challenger and absolutely cannot wait to meet each and every one of you! We are going to have a groovy year full of fun and adventure so get ready for the journey! This is my 9th year of teaching and my second year at Challenger. I taught one year of special education, 4 years of 3rd grade, and 3 years of 4th grade. I absolutely LOVE to read, but math is my favorite subject! I was born and raised in Houston, joined the army and moved to Colorado where I spent 16 years before finally coming back home. It is so good to be back home! I am a collector of all things Rae Dunn because I love words! I am married and together we have 7 children!  Most of them are grown so we only have 2 teenagers left at home. Guess what, I am also a proud grandma of 2 of the cutest grandsons ever! I also have 2 cats that I just adore and 2 dogs that keep me busy. Are you ready for a great year together because I sure am?!! Let's do this!
