Hi! My name is Denise Kaplan and I am so excited to be teaching at Sugar Hill Elementary! I began teaching here in the 2014-2015 school year, and have been teaching since the 2010-2011 school year. I have taught third, fourth, fifth grades, as well as middle and high school. My experience with teaching at the middle and high school level has allowed me to experience a different level of academic expectations and better prepare our students for their academic future. In our classroom we focus on having a growth mindset.

I look forward to an amazing year full of learning and growing.
