Hello all! My name is Stephanie Baldwin and I am thrilled to be teaching 5th grade again this year with my wonderful team. It will be my 6th year in teaching, with my previous experience being in Washington State. When I am not in the classroom, one can find me on top of mountains, backpacking through Colorado, fly-fishing, scuba-diving, or spending time with friends and family. I am recently engaged to my fiancé Kurt, and will be getting married sometime next year.

I LOVE what I do, and I look forward to greeting my students every morning and seeing what each new day brings. I believe in creating a safe and accepting environment that is academically challenging, but also FUN! I have high expectations for my kids (I tend to refer to them as my own ), and will do everything possible to see that each child succeeds in their own way. To end with one of my favorite quotes, and something that I say to my kids regularly, “Kid, you’ll move mountains.” ~Dr. Seuss

Welcome to 5th Grade!
My name is Mr. Schimberg and I'm excited to be your teacher for the 2018-2019 school year. I grew up in the mountains, and graduated from Conifer High School. After that, I attended the University of Denver for my BA, and the University of Michigan for my Master's degree. This will be my 4th year of teaching, and second year teaching 5th grade. I like to spend time outside, traveling, and reading. I look forward to meeting and getting to know everyone as the year goes on!

Hi Bergen families! My name is Shannon Cunningham. I will be your child’s teacher for the 2017-2018 school year. This will be my 6th year teaching fifth grade at Bergen Valley. I am eager and excited to make this my best year yet! Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I am an avid outdoorswoman and love being outside from hiking and camping in the summer to snowboarding in the winter. Colorado makes a wonderful playground to explore. I am a Jeffco kid and graduated from Columbine High School before attending Western State in Gunnison. I am also gradually taking classes toward a Special Education degree. I love my large, blended family and spending time with my dogs. I am so glad you were chosen to be in my class. I will see you this afternoon at open house!

Hi kids, welcome to your new class. My name is Mrs. Eckert and I will be hanging out with you for the next year. I am so excited about our new journey together. There is so much to learn in fifth grade, and I am excited to be the one to stand by you as you learn it. I have been teaching for 23 years, 15 of them in fifth grade; so I guess you could say, "I know my stuff." I am excited to get to know each and every one of you throughout the year. Yay fifth grade!
