My name is Bailey Lardes and I am thrilled to be teaching 3rd grade at Meridian. This is my 7th year of teaching and my 3rd at Meridian. I attended Colorado State University (despite being a huge Buffs fan) and earned my Bachelor’s Degree with an endorsement in Early Childhood Education. I went on to earn my Master’s Degree from Regis University and received an endorsement in Elementary Education.
I live in Thornton with my husband, also a teacher in Adams 12, and my little girl who is currently 8 months. When I’m not in the classroom I enjoy reading, watching movies, running, baking, going out for Sweet Cow Ice Cream and spending time as a family.
As I teacher I do everything I can to create a positive environment for my students and encourage them to strive for greatness. I can't wait for another wonderful year!
