Miss Michelle Digman
My name is Michelle Digman. I am one of the second grade teachers at Madison Elementary. The Second Grade curriculum will engage and motivate students on wanting to learn. I am looking forward to seeing tremendous growth of my students in their academic skills. My goal is to motivate and teach students the skills, strategies, and knowledge to become successful lifelong learners.
2022 - 2023 starts my 17th year of teaching! I have worked in District 11 for six years as an educator. This will be my first year at Madison Elementary School. Previously, I taught third grade at Scott Elementary for two years, as well as, third and fourth grade at McAuliffe Elementary for four years. Before coming to Colorado, I taught for ten years in Florida, teaching different grades from Pre-K to 12th. I was also a Testing Coordinator for three years.
I was born in Florida, but moved to and grew up in Pueblo County for ten years. I moved back to Florida to finish my last year of high school, and continued my education through college. The majority of my family lives in Florida. I moved to Colorado Springs in late summer of 2016, and I enjoy it very much! I bought my first house in the Summer of 2020. I have one cat, named Pandora. She and I love to travel! When I am not teaching, I love sleeping in and relaxing. I also work as a doula, as a side job.
