Hello Smith Parents and Families. My name is Holli Coburn and I am a 4th/5th grade ELA-E Literacy Teacher. This year is my 21st year of teaching in Denver Public Schools. This year is my 5th year teaching at Smith! I look forward to teaching your student! I am a product of Denver Public Schools, and a proud graduate of Montbello High School. I have a B.A. in Elementary Education, as well as a M.A. in Clinical Counseling from the University of Northern Colorado. I spent the first fourteen years of my career teaching 5th and 3rd grades at Ashley Elementary. After teaching at Ashley, I taught 4th grade at a local charter school for two years. In my spare time, I enjoy traveling with my husband Christopher and our two sons, attending sporting events , music festivals, strolling along the beach, and supporting my favorite sports teams the Denver Broncos, Denver Nuggets, and Colorado Rockies!!!!
