PHC Building Wellness Team

MSES = Mustang Might


Jessie Larsen
Hi! I am Jessi Larsen. I have been working at Manitou Springs Elementary School since 2011. Beyond wellness co-leader for MSES, I am also one of our 4th grade teachers. I have been the co-leader of our school wellness team, Mustang Might, for a total of 7 years. As a wellness team, we lead our school on many initiatives that engage staff, students and families to choose a more healthy lifestyle. I love that our version of healthy encompasses mind, body and spirit.

Maddie Goldman
Hey there! My name is Maddie Goldman. I grew up in a small town outside of Boston and moved out to Colorado many years ago to attend Colorado College! Since graduating, I have had the pleasure of teaching first grade, second grade, and am now settled in as a fourth grade teacher. I have been teaching at MSES since 2017, and I am not planning on leaving anytime soon. This school district is one of (if not) THE BEST! I joined PHC and the Wellness Team via Mustang Might my first year here and have been constantly inspired by their commitment to promoting both student and staff health and wellness. I think that having healthy minds, healthy bodies, and feeling safe are essential in a school community that fosters deep learning opportunities, so when the privilege to become a Wellness Co-Leader arose, I was thrilled and honored to join!
