Mrs. Connet
Hello parents and students!
All About Mrs. Connet
I am a Colorado native. I grew up in Eldorado Springs Canyon outside of Boulder.  I am very close to my mom, dad and my brother, Aaron.  I moved to the Durango/Bayfield area in 2002 to attend Fort Lewis College. I have been in education for over 12 years. I have taught 2nd grade, 3rd grade, 5th grade and K-5 interventions. I even taught on the Island of Roatan, Honduras!  I am now diving into the Dean of Students position at BIS. I am excited to support teachers,  students, and parents in the BIS community this year. 
I married my best friend, Dan, this summer at Velocity Basin at over 11,500 feet. Dan and I have a Saint Bernard pup named Kiera. I love to relax by reading a book or playing with clay on my pottery wheel. I love spending time outdoors riding my mountain bike, hiking, rafting, camping, gardening and snowboarding. I also love to travel and explore other cultures.
