We would like to introduce the Holly Hills Intervention Team: Lorrie Yoshinaga, Michele Beaman and Danielle Odom.
Lorrie is starting her second year with the Hollys. This year she is supporting third, fourth, and fifth grade in Reading and Math. Lorrie is a native of Colorado and is married to Loren, and has a son, Ian (8 years old), a dog named Fireball and two mice. She enjoys camping, running, mountain biking, golfing and pretty much any activity that takes her outside. Lorrie's previous career was in Structural Engineering and she likes to share her passion for math and science with her students.
Michele is new to the Hollys this year and comes to us with eight years of teaching experience. Her teaching journey has led her from Southern California to Nevada, and finally here to Colorado. She holds Master's Degrees in Literacy and Instructional Leadership, and we are very excited to have her expertise here at the Hollys. Currently, she teaches reading, writing, and math to third and fourth grade students. Her husband, Derek, a Colorado native, and Michele have a 7 month old son named A.J., and two dogs - Rosco and Jack. They spend their free time with friends and family, traveling, and looking for fun things to do around Denver.
Danielle is new to the Hollys as well, where she serves as an Interventionist Technician. She is a Veteran of the United States Air Force and is a native of Colorado. With her passion for teaching and children she spent much of her time volunteering by mentoring and tutoring. Danielle is in the process of completing her Bachelors in Elementary Education, where she looks forward to doing what she has always done; work with children. Danielle, a proud mother, enjoys spending time with her family. She also loves music, dancing, and laughing.
You will always find these ladies with a smile on their faces and an infectious energy.
