Mr. Buller was born and raised in the small eastern Nebraska town of Henderson. After high school, he went on to earn a Bachelor's Degree in German and English from Doane College in Crete, Nebraska. Shortly after college, Buller got his first teaching job in Gretna (near Omaha) where he taught all levels of German. He has also taught German and English in Potter, Nebraska, and Wray, Colorado. In 2011, Buller transitioned from the classroom to administration where he served as a K-8 principal in Yuma, Colorado.
While at Doane, Mr. Buller met his future wife, Andrea, while on band tour in Chicago. They married in 2000, and together they have four wonderful children: Jakob, Elisabet (Lisi), Karsten, and Brantley.
I am originally from Westfield, New Jersey. That's right, New Joyzee, exit 135 off the Garden State Parkway. I moved to Colorado in 1989 and truly love the humidity free summers. Summit County is where I began my career working with children teaching preschool in Dillon.
I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio. Joining the West Grand team in 2004 as an Instructional Paraprofessional proved to be a wonderful happening, affirming my passion for education. I recently earned my Master of Arts in Counseling from Adams State University in 2014.
My husband Patrick and I have two daughters, Sarah a Sophomore at Ft Lewis College in Durango, Colorado and Emily a Junior at West Grand High School. My free time is spent enjoying time with my family and our menagerie of animals. I can also be heard cheering loudly for West Grand students at any given sporting event. It is my goal to provide the necessary social and emotional support that our students need in order to help them achieve academic success.
