About Me:

Hello all! My name is Michael Ludwig. I am very excited to begin our next adventure here in Acres Green Elementary. I’m going to tell you a little about myself before I get to my educational background and teaching history. I was born in Chicago, Il. but grew up here in Colorado. My parents and my siblings moved to our wonderful state when I was three years old. I met my amazing wife Callie here at Acres Green and together we have a young daughter (Adelaide) who was born before the 2017 school year. I have two sisters who live here in Colorado, my brother lives back in Illinois, and my parents and my youngest sister live in Florida. I am an avid sports fan and love the Denver Broncos. I enjoy writing, reading, listening to music and any activity that keeps me outside enjoying this amazing state we live in.
Now for my educational background: I attended school in Adams 12 throughout my early education. In Adams 12 I Attended Daniel B. Stukey Elementary, Northeast Middle School, and Horizon High School. I then went to Metropolitan State College of Denver, where I majored in History with a Minor in Elementary Education, graduating in 2006.
Throughout my career I have been fortunate to work with many amazing educators. I began teaching fourth grade in Englewood Public Schools during the 2006-2007 school year. I taught fourth and fifth grade while in Englewood. I was then lucky enough to work in Cherry Creek Public Schools beginning in the 2009-2010 school year. I remained in Cherry Creek for two years teaching fourth grade.
Again fortune has smiled on me! After teaching sixth grade for two years at Acres Green, I am now in my eighth year of fourth grade here at our wonderful school. I am looking forward to sharing many exciting adventures with our students this year at Acres Green!
