Mrs. Frederick earned her bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology from the University of Hawaii and decided to go back for her Masters degree in Elementary Education from Chaminade University. She has taught second through fifth grade, and is now excitedly teaching third grade here at Governor’s Ranch Elementary School. In her spare time she enjoys adventures with her family and friends to see all the beauty that Colorado has to offer. Another interest she has is in Robotics and problem based learning. She loves advising the Robotics Team, with her marvelous colleagues, to provide hands-on experience with robots. This is Mrs. Frederick’s fifth year at GRE and she is grateful and thrilled to be able to work with wonderful children, teachers, and families. School is an ohana (family) to Mrs. Frederick and she is blessed to be a part of the GRE ohana everyday!
