Welcome to 2nd Grade!

Esther Hitchcock

I am thrilled to be back at Devinny Elementary and be a part of Devinny’s 2nd grade team!  I began my teaching career in 2000 and joined Jeffco Public schools 8 years ago. Prior to that, I taught in Boulder and Denver. All of which has been in the primary grades (kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade). I've been at Devinny for 4 years and am excited to start another year! I'm originally from the east coast, New York and New Jersey. I moved to Colorado in 2000 seeking a new adventure where it quickly became my new home. I completed my undergraduate degree in Early Childhood Education at Lock Haven University of Pennsylvania and my Masters in Linguistically Diverse Education (ESL) at the University of Colorado Denver.

I love spending time with my family! I have a wonderful husband (from Green Bay), 2 young children and a dog, Lambeau (Go Pack Go!). I enjoy hiking, camping, gardening and going to music festivals in the summer. I believe in open communication and collaboration. Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions or information that you’d like to share. I look forward to a wonderful year ahead with this fabulous group of 2nd graders!!

This is my sixteenth year of teaching and my eleventh year teaching at Devinny Elementary. I received a B.S. in Zoology from Texas A&M University and a Master's Degree in Gifted and Talented Education from The University of Texas Pan-American. I am the proud mother of two children, Jackson and Alexa, two dogs, Benson and Cady, and two cats, Sokka and Toby. I enjoy reading, crafting, and bike riding. Before I was a teacher, I was a zookeeper!
