Hello! My name is Colleen Fuller and I am the 1st-grade teacher at Minerva. This is my second year teaching at Minerva, although I did fill a maternity leave position in 2019. I was so excited when I had the opportunity to come back for a full-time position.
I grew up in North Creek and graduated from Johnsburg in 2013. After which I attended SUNY Potsdam where I graduated with a bachelor's in Childhood/Early Childhood Education and a master's degree in Literacy Education. After graduating, I filled different maternity leave positions at Johnsburg, Minerva, and Wells Central schools. I was so excited when I was offered a full-time position here. It was such a warm welcoming community and somewhere I knew I wanted to be. As someone who grew up in a smaller area, I knew how great having smaller class sizes was to get close to your students. I love being able to establish close relationships with my students and their families. Family is also very important to me, so staying close to home was also a big bonus!
When I am not at school you can find me doing anything outside. I love being out in nature and exploring the woods around. I spend a lot of time hunting, maple sugaring, and snowmobiling during the cold weather seasons. In warmer weather, I love swimming and hanging out by the water. Over the summer I got my first house that even has its own pool. It makes for the perfect place to relax and pick up a good book! Reading is also one of my favorite things to do and I love to share that love with my students in hopes it will rub off on them too. The last fun fact I'll leave about me is I LOVE the Jonas Brothers (probably even more than I should admit.) I even had the opportunity to see them twice on their most recent tour.
I am looking forward to this year at MCS. I absolutely adore my first graders and I can't wait to see them grow this year. They are already making such progress.
