Meet Mrs. Branch daisy

Hello!  My name is Judy Branch and I am the Professional Learning Specialist (PLS) at Pine Grove Elementary.  I feel I have the luckiest job in the world, because I get to work with students, teachers, administration, and the community to help Pine Grove be the best it can be.  My duties at Pine Grove include: READ Act Coordinator, NEHS & Battle of the Books Sponsor, MTSS Coordinator, School Assessment Coordinator, New Teacher Induction, and Professional Development.


I am a Colorado Native, born and raised in Littleton, Colorado.  I have a wonderful family that I enjoy spending time with whenever possible.  Beyond that, I love to run, walk, read, cook and spend time with friends. 


My undergraduate degree is in Communications from CU Boulder, and my graduate degree is in Informational Technology from CU Denver.  I have taught all grades K-3, and have been lucky enough to be in this role since 2011.


Please let me know how I can support you in the amazing Pine Grove Elementary community! Enthusiasm is the mother of effort, and without it nothing great was ever achieved. Ralph Waldo Emerson
