What Your Fourth Grader Will Learn

Fourth Grade Teachers

Robert Mery

My name is Robert Mery.  This is my second year at Imagine Classical Academy.  I have a Bachelor’s of Art in History from UCCS with an emphasis in elementary education.  My mother and grandmother inspired me to become a teacher with their love of teaching.  I enjoy sports and collecting sports cards/memorabilia in my free time.  I am looking forward to having an incredible year!!!

Lucy Nelson

My name is Lucy Nelson and I am one of the fourth grade teachers here at Imagine Classical Academy. I am originally from South Carolina, but after serving in the Air Force and living in a variety of places, I relocated to Colorado Springs in 2008. 

I have been in and out of the classroom most of my adult life- as a student, volunteer, substitute teacher, and classroom teacher. I am a certified teacher in the state of Colorado with a Bachelor’s degree in Special Education and a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology.

I have three children; my two older sons attend college and my daughter is a student at Imagine Classical Academy. I enjoy spending time with family, sightseeing, hiking, and traveling. I also enjoy reading a good book, going to the movies, watching college football, eating out, appreciating a good cup of coffee, and being entertained with clean comedy (aka Tim Hawkins). I am a dog lover and currently have one Siberian Husky/ German Shepard mix.

I am very excited to have the opportunity to spend another year here at Imagine Indigo Ranch teaching a group of amazing kids with an exceptional curriculum.

Dan Speer

My name is Daniel Speer. I am both a teacher and parent at Imagine and whole-heartedly endorse and support our school community. In my time at Imagine I have been a PTO teacher representative, the 2013-14 teacher of the year and completed the Imagine Schools GYOL (Grow Your Own Leaders) program. I am currently in the 4th grade and work hard to ensure that all my students feel safe and happy in our school environment and have a classroom in which they can take risks and grow.

The Vision of Our Classroom – In this classroom we believe that learning is a lifelong adventure. We believe in facing each day with minds open to love. We believe in the freedom to wonder, to ask, to explore, to imagine and to create. We believe that success means doing our best, being our best, and feeling proud of our effort. We believe that every one of us has special talents, and that the talents of each of us, helps all of us. We believe in ourselves and in each other in this classroom.
