Second Grade

Welcome to 2nd grade! We are so excited to have your child in our classes this year! 2nd grade has so many fun filled events. The kids really get to dive into different communities, fossils and dinosaurs, and pollination and pollinators this year! We can't wait to see how much your child will grow this year!

Stephanie Amella
Amella family My name is Stephanie Amella, and I feel so fortunate to be a part of the SHE family for my 5th year! Overall this will be my 21st year teaching! I have taught 14 years in 1st grade and this will be my 7th year teaching 2nd grade. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Colorado State University of Pueblo in 2001 and my Masters in Curriculum and Design from Grand Canyon University in 2005. 

I have been happily married for 18 years to my husband Gary and we have a 15 year old son named Gavin and a 12 year old daughter named Aiven. Aiven will be a 7th grader attending Castle Rock Middle School. Gavin will be a freshman at Castle View High School.  I love spending time with my family. We spend a lot of time traveling throughout the Nation in the Summer to watch my son and daughter compete in the U.S. Kids Golf Tour, AJGA, CGA and PGAjr tournaments. My entire family including myself love to play golf. We also keep very active with tennis, volleyball, baseball, and football.  When I am not busy cheering on my kiddos in their sports, I love cheering on the Denver Broncos...hopefully we will have an awesome season this year with Russell Wilson!

Liz Wulf
Wulf family

I am a wife, mother of three amazing sons, and soon-to-be grandmother (what??)! My oldest son and his wife are expecting a GIRL on September 22! I have “girl” in caps because we are a family full of boys on both sides! We are all VERY excited for this little one’s arrival. 

I am also a TEACHER (from a long line of teachers, many family members including my mom and both grandmothers, and my grandfather was a professor of chemistry at Texas A & M University). I have a degree in business from the University of Colorado and a Master’s degree in Elementary Education from the University of Phoenix. This will be my 11th year teaching at Soaring Hawk. I LOVE this community of families, and the staff of our school is like family!

My husband and I live in Parker in the home where we raised our three sons – Aaron, Adam, and Michael, who are all graduates of Douglas County Schools. We are all crazy about being outdoors, hiking/biking/camping/skiing/snowboarding, and generally “playing” together whenever we can! I also enjoy golfing, and I love to sing and READ, of course!

Some of my other passions are our national parks, the mountains, oceans, plants, trees, and ANIMALS of all kinds (wolves are my favorite, of course). Children are my favorite humans!

My name is Yvette Wieter and I am thrilled to be your child’s second grade teacher at Soaring Hawk Elementary. I am excited to help your child grow academically and personally.  I have been a teacher for thirteen years. I have taught many grades (first, second, and fourth) and I have substituted kindergarten through eighth grade. I have an Elementary Education degree with middle school endorsements in Biological Science, Social Science, and Language Arts.  My family and I moved here seven years ago from Illinois.  (Yes, we are Chicago fans!)  I have three children (16, 14 ½, and 11) and two dogs (both are Boxers).  In my spare time, I like to spend time with my family and dogs, hike, read, bake, and watch my kids play sports (mostly soccer, basketball, track, and pole vault).  This summer, I got to go skydiving and crossed another adventure off my bucket list.  I look forward to working with your child and you!
