Teacher Spotlight: Meet 6th Grade Teacher, Ms. Keely Vaughan

keelyThis month, we want you to learn more about Ms. Vaughan! Keely Vaughan grew up in Littleton, CO, and attended Columbine High School. She went on to Creighton University where she studied Journalism with an emphasis in Photography. When she returned to Colorado, she received her teaching license at Regis University. Keely’s dad is a Colorado native and her Mom is from Illinois. They are retired and living in Conifer where they have recently celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary. She has a sister who works for the National MS Society and a brother and sister-in-law who are teachers in Denver. She has three awesome nieces: Eloise, Penelope, and Agnes.

Keely taught for three years in Highlands Ranch at Saddle Ranch Elementary, and we have been blessed to have her at Sage Canyon since it opened. Her Colorado-native family loves the outdoors and spends much of their time hiking or snowshoeing. She has fond childhood memories of spending time up at Copper Mountain, her favorite resort, and in Crested Butte. Most Sundays are spent volunteering at the Intermountain Humane Society. Her passion next to teaching, is helping to foster and care for shelter animals. She has helped close to ten Sage Canyon families adopt a new furry family member!

Two things you may not know about Keely:  1) She lived in Ireland for about 18 months in college. Her favorite place she explored while traveling abroad was the beautiful country of Croatia.  2)  Her favorite book is Pride and Prejudice and she reads it every year.

Please join us in thanking Keely for the amazing work that she does at Sage Canyon every day!!!!
