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 sharp year full of fun and adventure, so get ready for the journey! This is my 10th year of teaching and my third year at Challenger. I taught one year of special education, 4 years of 3rd grade, and 3 years of 4th grade before joining the Eagle family. 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 1 teenager left at home. Guess what, I am also a proud Mimi of 2 of the cutest grandsons ever (soon to be 3)! I also have 4 cats that I just adore (most of the time) and a dog that keeps me busy. Are you ready for a great year together because I sure am!! Let's do this!

My conference period is 8:45-9:35
