Hi! I'm Terrilyn Pugnetti, and I am thrilled to be teaching 7th grade Language Arts at Silver Hills Middle School. Originally from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, I moved to Colorado in 1999 and continue to fall in love with this gorgeous state each and every day. Upon arriving here, I taught elementary school (grade 6) in Douglas County for several years before moving to Thornton and landing a job with Adams 12 Five Star Schools in 2005. I love teaching at the middle school level, and I pride myself on utilizing my M.Ed degree and bringing technology into my classroom. My enthusiasm is contagious as I explore the many different ways I can engage my students in learning, prepare them for their futures, and get to know their strengths and needs. I look forward to working with you and seeing your growth as a 21st century learner!
