Teacher Bios

Diane Klinkerfues
This is my 27 year teaching in Jeffco! I spent my first four years teaching art, music and P.E. at Hutchinson Elementary and Coal Creek Elementary and two years as the Jeffco Music Coordinator. I can hardly believe that I have taught 21 years at Devinny. I did my undergraduate work at CSU and my received my masters degree from Lesley
University in Curriculum and Instruction. I have been married to my husband Kevin for 23 years and am the Praise Team director at Holy Shepherd Lutheran Church in Lakewood.

I love teaching elementary students and hope that music will always have a place in their lives!

Mary Elliott
Mary Elliott has degrees in Business Marketing, Education and Visual Art. She has had the honor of teaching art at Devinny Elementary for five years. In addition, she has been a professional artist for over 20 years. Mrs. Elliott created the murals in the cafeteria with the Student Council in 2010 and she loves ART! She loves sharing art with Elementary students and is very proud of the work Devinny students do every day!
