Louis Mancuso

Hello! My name is Louis Mancuso. I grew up here in Douglas County, knew it was a great place to be, and now have been teaching in DCSD for 23 years. I am married to my wonderful wife, Caroline, and have 2 kids: Marin 13 and McQuaid 10. I enjoy being in the outdoors, traveling, and socializing with family & friends. I will be your child’s 6th grade Science & Social Studies teacher. This will be my 6th year at Soaring Hawk. I am looking forward to a wonderful year together!


Shay Watson

Hello everyone! This is my 8th year at Soaring Hawk.  After teaching 5th grade for a long time, I am excited to be teaching 6th grade ELA now. I grew up in Castle Rock and even graduated from DC. I am very adventurous and love to travel. During quarantine you would have found me fishing somewhere with my family. I love to read books and play video games. An interesting fact about me is that I have worked at Applebee’s for almost 15 years. I love socializing any chance I get. 

Cathy Theis

Hello! My name is Cathy Theis. I am a Colorado native, but have only been in the  Denver area for 2 years. I will be your child’s 6th grade Math teacher. This will be  my 2nd year at Soaring Hawk, and I love it! I have taught pre-school and grades  first through fifth over the past 19 years. Math is by far my favorite subject to  teach. I am looking forward to all the adventures we have ahead of us.
