Mrs. Colleen Deegan

Welcome to the 2017 - 2018 School Year


am so thrilled to be working with you and your child as part of our classroom community.  In our community, we learn to care about each other and work together. Our community celebrates each and every member of the group.


This is my sixteenth year teaching. I taught 5th grade for ten years at New Prospect Elementary School, and I starting my sixth year teaching 3rd grade.  My goal is to provide a caring, community-oriented environment where your child can build self-confidence, responsibility,  and achieve, but most of all, continue to have a personal desire to learn.
I am the mother of three grown children who are spread all over the country: Denver, New York City, and Charlotte.   My husband and I are the proud grandparents of  5 year old Gwenn, starting Kindergarten and 3 year old Asher. We have a standard poodle, Max.   I enjoy knitting, sewing, and reading as hobbies. I love the outdoors and enjoy fishing in the beautiful streams and lakes of North Carolina and South Carolina.  This summer I spent a week fishing in the Rocky Mountains!
