Meet Ms. Elena!
Hello Crew!
My name is Elena Henson and I am absolutely honored to be part of REMS!  I moved to Castle Rock from Houston where I lived for 25 years. I have a bachelor’s degree in Business & Information Systems from Texas A&M University, and a master’s degree in Elementary Education from the University of Houston.
I have been teaching the primary grades for 12 years in Houston and had an opportunity to teach STEM class at South Ridge Elementary for 1 year.
I have two children. My daughter Isabel is a senior this year and my son Vitas will start kindergarten at REMS.
Some of my passions include white water rafting, snow tubing and swimming.  I have a garden where I grow tomatoes, onions, strawberries, blueberries and raspberries.  I love to walk and to cook outside because the weather here in Colorado is wonderful!
