Meet Our Second Grade Team!
Second Grade Lead
My name is Angelina Barela. I was born and raised right here in Colorado Springs. I received my Bachelor's Degree from the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs in Psychology with a minor in Ethnic Studies. I went to Regis University for my Master's Degree in Elementary Education.
This school year will be my eighth year at Roosevelt Charter Academy. Each year I am here I grow to love the school, staff, students, parents, and the whole community more and more. I have also taught first grade here.
I am a BIG DENVER BRONCOS fan. I have gone to a few of their games, but whether I see them on television or in person they are my FAVORITE team.
If you cannot find me at work, you might find me at home relaxing, watching television, cooking new foods, or learning something new. These are some of the ways I like to relax. My favorite way to relax, though, is to attend kickboxing; this gives me a great workout-both physically and mentally.
I am very excited for this year and cannot wait to get to know you more.

My name is Jamila McCallister, and I am certified to teach Early Childhood and Elementary Education. This will be my sixth year at Roosevelt Charter Academy. I firmly believe that creating a caring, safe, and engaging learning environment, which encourages students to build relationships and be confident in their abilities is the key to a successful classroom.
Hello! My name is Mrs. Crowther! I have been working at Roosevelt for six years now. I have been teaching second grade for all six of those years. I come from a family of six children. My husband and I got married about a year ago and have two cats -- Hades and Zeus. When I am not teaching I love to read and go hiking. My favorite place to go right now is up around 7 Bridges. I love sweets of any kind- unless it is cinnamon or coffee flavored (yuck!).
