8th Sir Lancelot

Sir Lancelot Team Video Introduction


Melinda Highsmith- Math, [email protected]

I was born and raised in Colorado.  I went to school at Colorado State University, go RAMS!  I have been teaching for almost 30 years and almost 20 of those have been at CRMS.  I have 2 adult children, Julia and Jeremy, and one grandchild, Eden.  I coach volleyball and have coached flag football, cross country, and basketball.  My passion is helping animals in need.  I have 4 rescued Siberian Huskies that rule my world.  A good day is when a student gets a math topic, my dogs got to go to the dog park and I get to see my family.    

Alison Gordon- Science, [email protected]

This is my thirteenth year teaching Science at CRMS.  I grew up in Castle Rock and went to Castle Rock Middle School and Douglas County High School.  I received both a Bachelor of Arts in Biology and a Master of Arts in Teaching  from Colorado College.  I coach volleyball, basketball, and track at CRMS. 



Shari Lewis- Social Studies, [email protected]

This is my 20th year of teaching at Castle Rock Middle School. I have taught for a total of 23 years. A crazy fact about me is that I am certified to teach Language Arts, History, and Physical Education. I was asked this year to teach Social Studies to help out the school. What can I say, I love my job. I grew up in Littleton and went on to UNC for my bachelors degree. I received my Master in Curriculum & Instruction. I have many hobbies such as coaching, being a gym "rat", and a love for Labs. My claim to fame is that I coached Mallory Pugh in high school. She currently plays for our National team and won the World Cup in France.


Breeanne Moore- Language Arts, [email protected]

This is my third year teaching at Castle Rock Middle School. I am a Colorado native, and grew up in the Littleton area. I attended Metropolitan State University of Denver, and have a degree in English with a concentration in Secondary Education. When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, reading, working on jigsaw puzzles, and completing whatever my newest arts and crafts project happens to be at the moment.
