Hi! My name is Anne Dailey and I’m so excited to join the Carson team! I started my teaching career in Aurora and where I taught for 9 years. While in Aurora, I had the opportunity to teach 1st, 3rd, and 4th grades.Then, I transferred to DPS and taught 5th grade for 4 years. Most recently, I have been a small group teacher providing intervention and extension groups to 4th graders in both reading and math. Through all my experiences, I loved teaching 5th grade the most and am so excited to teach the 5th graders at Carson!
When I’m not teaching, I love to read, cook, spend time outdoors, and have fun with my family and dog. I have two sons, Chuck is 7 and Jack will be 13 this summer. We love heading up to the mountains, especially in the summer to escape the heat.
Born and raised in Texas, I lived there for 30 years before moving to Colorado 17 years ago. My teaching career spans 19 years with the last 14 at Carson, in which I have had the opportunity to enjoy the company of many wonderful fifth graders.
In my time as a teacher, I also developed a passion for educating through animal rescue and after volunteering with local shelters and metro area rescue organizations, my husband, Gregg, and I started Red Fern Animal Rescue. Our mission is to rescue dogs and cats from neglect/abandonment in south Texas and to relocate them to their “furever” homes in Colorado.
Gregg and I have a “few” canine children on the homefront (all rescues of course)!
In 2014, I decided that I wanted to have a career where I felt I made a difference so I began teaching students who were below grade level in math. It was the most exhausting but rewarding job I ever had so I decided to make the leap from accounting to teaching. In 2015, I applied and was accepted to the Denver Teacher Residency Program. In 2016, I graduated from the University of Denver with a Masters Degree in Education. I have been teaching kindergarten at Carson since the fall of 2016.
I have two children Theo, age 19, and Nate, age 16. In my spare time I enjoy playing tennis, hiking, skiing, gardening, traveling and spending time with my family and friends.
