- 2nd Grade Teacher
- 2nd Grade
Hello! My name is Rebecca Vogel-Pitts. I am beginning my 15th year in Primary Education. I have been at Central for 12 of those years teaching preschool, kinder, and am now beginning my 5th year in 2nd grade. I am also a founding teacher at Black Rock Elementary in Erie, where I taught kindergarten for 2 years. I have a B.S. in Human Development and Family Studies with an emphasis in Child Development from Colorado State University, an M.S. in Early Childhood Education with an emphasis in Special Education from CU Denver, and my teaching licensure from Metro State in Denver. I have loved all of these grade levels, but 2nd holds a special place in my heart. I love the curiosity and humor of 2nd graders. Their creativity and enthusiasm for learning is infectious.In my spare time I love to explore the world with my favorite person and partner, Scott. I am a huge music fan and concert goer. I love to explore interior design and architecture, to travel, get lost in art museums, read, and watch a variety of film genres. I also enjoy being outdoors, and enjoy hiking, paddle boarding, gardening, snow shoeing, and star gazing as well. I have two children who are 24 and 22 years old. My daughter is an artist living in Portland, Oregon, and my son is a Senior studying Journalism and Communications at Colorado State University. My husband Kevin passed away unexpectedly in 2016. He was an incredible, giving person. Through his loss the Central community helped me to install a Buddy Bench on the Central campus. This special bench has built many friendships in the last few years, and it makes my heart happy to see our amazing students working together to create new friendships and build community in such a way. Central Elementary isn’t only a school; it’s a community of incredible educators, learners and families who truly care about one another. I am so lucky to be a part of it.
