Greetings, my name is Carla Whitney. I am very eager to be your child’s fourth grade teacher. I am originally from the sunflower state of Kansas, but have been a Colorado resident most of my life. I’m a proud product of Denver Public Schools, and grew up on the far northeast side of Denver in the Montbello area. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Speech Communication and Elementary Education K-6 licensure locally from Metropolitan State College of Denver in 2000. I received my Masters of Art Education (MA.Ed) degree in Teacher Leadership from the University of Phoenix in 2012. I started my Denver Public Sccareer in education at Jessie Whaley Maxwell Elementary in the far northeast part of Denver Public School in 2001. I soared and landed at Lowry Elementary School in the fall of 2008. I’ve had the pleasure of teaching intermediate grades 3rd and 4th for the past 15 years.
