Language Arts & Social Studies Teacher


“When you learn, teach.
When you get, give.”

Maya Angelou

About Me:

My name is Denise Wideen and I couldn’t be more excited to be teaching 6th grade this year. I grew up in Las Vegas, Nevada and attended UNLV for my Bachelor of Liberal Arts in Psychology and for Graduate School. We moved to Colorado five years ago where I have completed my teaching credentials. I have been married for 23 years with three beautiful girls, and two labradoodles.

Why I teach:

The main reason I teach is because I love kids! I’ve enjoyed every minute as a parent and as a teacher. Creating environments where my students feel safe and comfortable learning is the goal. We will display respect in every aspect of our learning environment, and I’m excited to see where this school year will take us.
