Ms. Billie Pope, Fifth Grade Teacher
My name is Billie Pope, and I am so honored to be teaching here at Renaissance. My journey here at REMS has been personally expansive. I have enjoyed growing and learning right alongside my students. Each day, I am grateful to be in the classroom discovering amazing things about the world around us with my “kids”. I love my work and have found a community and a home here at REMS. My years here have truly been life changing.
I have been working in DCSD since 2001 and have had years of experience and training in special education, occupational therapy and Montessori method. I hold a Master of Arts in Teaching from Metropolitan State University. I am passionate about my craft, and becoming the best teacher possible for my students. I enjoy collaborating and being mentored by some of the most talented professionals in the field.
On a personal note, I grew up in the tiny mountain village of Georgetown, Co. My childhood was packed with mountain adventure, and skiing at Loveland Ski Area several days a week. I have two sons, Peyton and Dylan and they have grown up and left the nest! I also have a furry son named Sancho that we adopted from the Buddy Center here in Castle Rock. My hobbies include hiking, skiing, biking, gardening, painting, decorating, reading and generally being outside as much as possible.
