Why I chose Animas
I chose Animas to be in an engaging environment with teachers who really care about their students and want them to learn to the best of their abilities. Moving to the wonderful town of Durango this year i was very hesitant about the project based learning program. Coming from a smaller regular public school in the small town of Paonia Colorado I did not know what to expect. On my first day I immediately noticed how much the teachers cared and wanted to help. If you love smaller schools with a more engaging hands on curriculum Animas is the perfect choice for you.
My name is Kelly Thliveris and I grew up in the small town of Paonia Colorado before moving to Durango in the year 2020. I am a big time mountain biker and skier and love to do anything involved with being in the mountains. I played sports all throughout my elementary and middle school years and love basketball and football. I also love to play video games and enjoy taking care of animals. I have a dog named "Cali" and a bearded dragon.
