Longmont Estates teacher named finalist for state Teacher of the Year

Longmont Estates Elementary fifth-grade teacher Katie Goldsberry said school was always a magical place for her as a student, prompting her to want to create the same magic for the next generation. “The more you learn, you become open minded,” she said. “You become a citizen of not just your community and your state, but your world.” Goldsberry is one of six finalists for the Colorado Teacher of the Year award. The winner is expected to be announced Nov. 1, and will go on to compete in the Teacher of the Year Program.
