Melissa Armendariz

Special Education Teacher


I am a native of Montana but have lived in the Denver Metro area for the past 26 years. Photography, crochet, computer programming, outdoor activities, and time with family are my passions. I attended Montana State University for my Elementary, Spanish, and Special Education degrees; then attended University of Northern Colorado for my Masters degree in Special Education. Our community of students experience culturally and linguistically responsive instruction, academic rigor, and fun!
I am entering my 29th year teaching and am thrilled to be a part of the Smith Elementary School team!
