A bit about me!

My Biography

   

I am a fifth generation Colorado native, third generation from Loveland.  Traveling is my passion; Canada, Mexico, Europe and 48 states have been visited so far.  Teaching is my career; I have been a staff member in public schools, 2 private schools with CVA my first charter school.

 

My love is middle school, math and the opportunity to make a difference in the world. 

          Work hard. Be  nice!

 

 

Hello,

 

Welcome to the new website and 5 weeks of the 2018-2019 school year, in room 134, Middle School math.

I’m Carlalee Boettger, but I go by Carlee as an easier first name

I'm qualified to teach 6-12 math and physics in Colorado and Wyoming.

 

I have taught grades 6-12 and a year of college.  My favorite years are the middle school ones! 

 

Fun Fact 1

I wanted to be a teacher at the age of 5.  I had a board, a teacher desk and a student desk.  My first student was my father.  We did math because I couldn’t read his handwriting!  My second student was my sister.  She was great in all subjects!

 
   

Fun Fact 2

You probably have heard of an Exchange student.  Did you know that there are programs similar to that for teachers?  As a Fulbright scholar,  I applied to be an exchange teacher to England.  I swapped jobs, houses and cars with a teacher in Doncaster (northern England) for a year.  What an exciting experience!!!

 

 
 

When I am not teaching, or planning lessons I am:

outside!  I love to work in the garden.  My yearly goal is to

grow enough herbs and vegetables to last a summer. 

So far I can’t seem to last past August…maybe this year.

The last week of August!

What a successful start to the school year in Middle School math!  Students consistently brought pencils, calculators and composition books to class.  They worked well individually and in small learning groups.  Tomorrow we will finish 10 lessons in 6th math and 7th Pre-Algebra.  Our Cumulative Assessment will be this Thursday.  Algebra will be finishing their unit 1, solving equations and inequalities, this week.  We will test on Thursday September 5. Questions or comments?  Just e-mail!

Welcome to the CVA 2019-2020 School Year

Welcome to my Teacher Page, welcome back to CVA.  I look forward to seeing each one of you!
This afternoon is the School picnic.  You will share a meal with your family, try out some of the games we have waiting and have a chance to say "hi" to your teachers.  
I hope you had a good summer, with laughs and memories.  We will start classes on Wednesday and yes, we will do math!  Bring your calculator, composition book, pencil and eraser.  Take care!  See you soon!
