Mrs. Jeanne Graham

Hi students and parents! I am Jeanne Graham, and I am honored to be teaching 6th grade at MHE again this year. With pride, I can say that I have spent my entire teaching career at Mammoth Heights; this will be my 9th year working with the community that I love. I will be teaching language arts with all 6th graders while collaborating with the 6th grade teachers to build strong learners and literacy skills in all classrooms. I feel blessed to spend my days with MHE’s incredible students and I look forward to fostering a positive learning environment through mindfulness and seeing the strengths in others. I have two children (both at Chaparral High School), and my husband is a science teacher and volleyball coach at Grandview High School. Outside of school, I love spending time at my boys’ sporting events and with my large extended family. Playing golf, reading, hiking/walking, and watching basketball are three of my favorite pastimes, especially the CU Buffs. I am eagerly looking forward to having a fun and successful classroom experience  filled with kindness, innovative learning, and critical thinking this year. See you in August!

Mr. Ryan Swenson

Hello!  My name is Ryan Swenson, and I am extremely excited for another upcoming year at MHE with what is an amazing 6th grade team. This is will be my fifth year at MHE, and I will be teaching math. I grew up in Illinois, attended Northern Illinois University, and have taught fourth through sixth grade for the past nineteen years. I have also had the privilege of coaching football and basketball for the past eighteen years and am a huge sports fan. I have two daughters, one in middle school and the other is a third grader at MHE. When I am not teaching, some of my favorite activities include fishing, biking, playing with Izak (my black lab), watching my kids participate in different sporting activities, and spending time with my family. I also enjoy listening to and collecting various types of music. It is going to be a fun year filled with growth, opportunities, and excitement!!

Mrs. Ginny Stafford

Welcome to sixth grade! I am Mrs. Stafford and I am very excited to have the opportunity to learn and grow with you this year as one of your 6th grade teachers. My teaching experience comes from Los Angeles School District, the Cherry Creek School District and the Douglas County School District.  I will be teaching social studies this year with a focus on the humanities of the western hemisphere.  The humanities can be described as the study of how people process and document the human experience. This knowledge of the human experience gives us the opportunity to feel a sense of connection to those who have come before us, as well as to each other and our impact on the future. We will also be reading and writing along with Mrs. Graham. I am also very excited to introduce you to our 80/20 time and observe your creativity and critical thinking as you pursue your interests!  I have three children, all of whom attend Chaparral High School.  In my free time I enjoy supporting my children in their many athletic and academic endeavors, boating, reading, and hanging out with my extended family. I am also a huge Nebraska football fan,  Go Big Red! I look forward to a wonderful year full of learning, empathy, hard work and academic growth. See you soon!

My Website

Let me introduce myself,  my name is Mary Ann Caterina.  I am excited for another year at MHE!  I have been with DCSD since 1999; all of which has been at the intermediate level, fourth through sixth. My husband and I both originally from Michigan and moved to Colorado in 1982. Our daughter and son-in-law have blessed us with two beautiful grandsons.  I have had the pleasure of sharing  in a Paraguayan Student Exchange program, whereas our family grew larger; gaining two more daughters and a son. When I am not in school, I enjoy reading, hiking, golf and travel.  My philosophy is to provide an interesting experience  and challenging learning framework, while  focusing on Earth, Physical,  and Life Sciences; including Health and Wellness.   I am thankful for the opportunity to be a part of your child’s 6th grade career.
