Cheryl Badger
Teacher Librarian

I am so happy to be back at Slavens K - 8 for my 11th year in the library! This is my 16th year in DPS as a librarian, and my 25th year teaching. I love it! Being surrounded by books and kids is a great way to spend the day!
I have my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education from the University College of Buffalo. I taught LA in a middle school in NY for 3 years where I completed my MA as a Reading Specialist at the University of Albany. I then moved to Colorado to teach and ski. I taught 4th - 8th grade in Englewood schools for 7 years. In 2000, I left for a semester to travel to 13 countries and teach for Semester at Sea on a ship, The Universe Explorer. It was fabulous to travel with 700 wonderful college students from all over the US. I then returned to the US and headed back to the classroom to be a reading specialist in DPS. That's when I started taking Masters classes at University of Colorado in Denver for my Library Science and Technology MA. I have loved being a librarian and technology teacher ever since! Thank you for sharing your children with me everyday!
