Welcome to fifth grade at Colfax Elementary School! My name is Denise Callaway, and I teach math for the Jones/Callaway/Parks team. I have been teaching fifth grade since 1994, all at Colfax. I am very fortunate to work with a wonderful group of fellow teachers that believe that every child can succeed! Mrs. Jones, Ms. Parks and I have been team teaching for many years. We enjoy teaching together, and feel this is the best format to prepare our students. We are excited to get to know your children and you. Please contact us if you have any questions. "BELIEVE-ACHIEVE-SUCCEED" I enjoy riding horses, spending time with my kids and dog, dancing, as well as watching tv. I love hanging out with great friends!
