Teacher, 4th Grade
Hello! My name is Desteny Waln. I was born and raised in Trinidad, Colorado. My husband recently took a position that placed us on the western slope. This was a big move for us, but we built a house here and are excited to make this our new home. We have a 2-year-old daughter and expecting! Also, we enjoy outdoor activities and spending time with our 2 dogs. Personally, I have been teaching since 2009. The grades range from preschool to first grade. While going to school, I worked as a teacher assistant and gained so much experience. After graduating with my BA in Interdisciplinary Studies, I was offered a job teaching in a multi-grade level classroom. Four years later, I was offered a kindergarten position in a different school district. I have been a kindergarten teacher for the past 4 years. I feel blessed for this new adventure in 4th grade! Currently, I am working on my master’s degree in curriculum and instruction. I am excited to be part of your team!
