My name is Amy Morin and I am a proud Lowry Elementary first grade teacher. I grew up in a small town in Western Maine. Before college I served as an AmeriCorps Volunteer in Service to America in Philadelphia, and as a National Civilian Community Corps volunteer based on the Lowry campus in 1997. It was then that I fell in love with the Colorado lifestyle. After AmeriCorps, I became a pre-school teacher at a Waldorf school in Maine, and had the chance to travel to Hong Kong and China’s mainland provinces while attending undergraduate classes at the University of New Hampshire. In 2003, my husband’s engineering firm offered us the opportunity to move west. We jumped at the chance, and began our journey to both become Colorado licensed educators, and serve in Denver’s urban schools. I graduated from Metro State in 2005 and that same year we welcomed our first son. Two years later, our second son was born and both are now proud Lowry Elementary students! We feel fortunate to be a part of the diverse and welcoming Lowry community. When not at school, we enjoy hiking, camping, and cross country running in our nearby stunning mountains.
