Meet Mrs. Allen

Hi!  My name is Karen Allen.  I am the special education learning specialist for kindergarten, first, third and fourth grades.  I have been at Peiffer for 20 years.  I enjoy the long term relationships I get to build with my students and families.  At home my family and I enjoy sailing, paddle boats and good ol’ relaxing!

Meet Mrs. Sheftel

Hello!  Thank you for welcoming me to the Peiffer community!  I have been a learning specialist for almost 20 years, and spent the last six in Jeffco.  I enjoy working with all grade levels, both in and out of the classroom.  I also think collaboration is key, and I strive to establish positive relationships with all of my students and their families.  I’m very excited to be working in such a wonderful environment!

When I’m not at school, I try to help manage my 13 and 11 year-olds’ busy schedules.  We love hiking, snowboarding, and our two Blue Tick Coonhounds, Copper and Remington.  We were fortunate enough to celebrate my older daughter, Seraphina’s, Bat Mitzvah in Israel this past June!  Also, I try to forget about this…but my younger daughter, Eva, has a ball python named Jimmy!

Meet Ms. Brannon- School Psychologist

My name is Carrie Brannon and I am excited to be joining the Peiffer team this year! I love working with children. I have been a school psychologist for 10 years and before that, I was a Kindergarten and First Grade teacher in Chicago. 

In my free time I love swimming, traveling, and trying new restaurants. I am the proud owner of an incredibly wild Australian Shepherd named Maya. You can often find us hiking in Golden or lounging on the couch watching scary movies. 

I am looking forward to a wonderful school year!

Meet Ms DeOrdio- ESL

Hi! This will be my 6th year as a teacher and my second year at Peiffer. I am the ESL teacher for both Peiffer and Westgate Elementary schools. My time will be split with 3 days at Westgate and two at Peiffer, each week.
I am from New York, but moved to Colorado in 2013 when I joined AmeriCorps NCCC after college. I had an awesome time volunteering out here and decided to return for my Masters at UC Denver. One of those “I came for ______ and never left” stories.
I live in Westminster with my boyfriend, Tyler, and my dog, Knight. We spend our time exploring new towns, camping, fishing, hiking, and biking. I also love reading, playing volleyball, and yoga!!

Meet Ms. Stewart - Speech Pathologist

I am excited to enter my third year at Peiffer and fifth year as an SLP in Jeffco. I will be splitting my time between Peiffer and Normandy Elementary and Preschools. 

I am passionate about teaching speech/language skills to support students’ learning, participation, and communication with their peers and teachers. I value having fun and building confidence while working hard in speech! I also enjoy being a piece of a child’s team that works together to support the whole child and their educational experience. The Peiffer community is wonderful, and I am looking forward to continuing to develop  and strengthen relationships with our families and students. I am available and eager to talk and collaborate with families, so please feel free to reach out anytime!

I love being active outside! Some of my favorite activities are running, hiking, camping, biking, and reading :)
