For Mrs. Cash, Colorado seems to combine every aspect of all of the places she’s lived. She grew up in the mountains of western North Carolina, attended college near Lexington, Kentucky, and completed graduate school in the western suburbs of Chicagoland. For a while, Mrs. Cash lived in the capital city of Honduras. It was in Illinois, though, that she met her husband, Leighton, and had her two sons.
Mrs. Cash prefers to spend her free time outdoors with her family, but when she has time to herself, she enjoys mountain biking, hiking, swimming, skiing, horseback riding, and playing the piano. She also loves reading because of the insight it offers her into cultural and generational perceptions of the world. She is currently reading Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver; it’s both an adventure story about living off the land and an educational story about local and artisanal food.
She was investigating Classical educational options for her own children when she was told about Golden View Classical Academy. A strong supporter of Classical education, Mrs. Cash believes in our mission, which is why she decided to choose Golden View Classical not only for her kids but also for herself. As a paraprofessional, she “can invest in families, support students, and be an encouragement to the educators and administrators of our school.”
What most excites her about the future of Golden View Classical is watching as the staff and faculty equip students with the skills and tools they need to meet high expectations. “I believe Golden View Classical Academy is right on target in offering an academically excellent education that engages our kids and develops them as people. I have witnessed firsthand kids of various academic abilities respond to the beauty of Classical education. These kids are excited about learning and knowing so much about the world around them.”
In closing, Mrs. Cash stated, “Golden View Classical will be a vital instrument in training our future leaders.”
