Mrs. Veronica McAchran

Welcome to 5th Grade !!!

A little about me...
I was raised in a small town on the Kenai Peninsula in Alaska.  I loved growing up being able to fish, hike, and be in the outdoors.  When it came time for college I packed up the Ford Escort and headed south.  While on break from school, and back home earning money to pay for college, I met the love of my life... Knowing that he was the one, I switched schools and transferred to New Mexico and continued working on my educational journey. During my eight years in Albuquerque, Aaron and I were married, (Your typical love story, desert rat marries snow bunny), and added a daughter and son to our little family. Our sweet babies grew to become demanding, ever needy teenagers.  My daughter is 1 and a Senior in high school.  My son is 16 and a Junior. Both attend Rocky Mountain High School.  We enjoy watching them play soccer and baseball, going on road trips, cheering on the Chicago Cubs, and filling our home with as much laughter as possible.  Our three dogs and two cats help round out our family unit.  They are the loves of my life, and paint my world a wonderful shade of beautiful, crazy.  During my off time you can find me partaking in an activity related to any one of my kiddos.  I also enjoying running, working on art projects, and just relaxing inthe comfort of my home.
Teaching Experience... 
The 2019-2020 school term starts my sixteenth year of teaching.  I have both my undergraduate degrees in Elementary and Special Education.  I also have a Master's in Special Education with an emphasis on Autism Spectrum Disorders.  I have taught in both General and Special Education classrooms.  I'm all about helping my students receive the tools needed, allowing them to become more independent with thier learning, and making sure the classroom setting is a warm welcoming environment. 
2019-2020 School Year
I am so happy to have the opportunity to work with your child.  There are a lot of exciting things coming up this year.  If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me.  I know we are going to have a GREAT year!!!
Thanks,  Veronica
