My husband John Carter and I are lucky to call Englewood our home. John grew up just over the Denver border near Federal and Harvard and graduated from Lincoln High School. He now teaches in the Math Department at Metro State University of Denver. His parents, Lyle and Jean Carter, were leaders in the Englewood VFW and Auxiliary and the Carter family spent many Thanksgivings eating turkey at the “V”. We have two amazing kids, Louise (13) and Joe (10), who have spent their entire school careers in Englewood schools (Louise is currently an 8th grader at Englewood Leadership Academy and Joe is a 5th grader at Charles Hay Elementary). Both kids were bitten by the drama bug thanks to the Englewood Summer Drama program and school drama programs. For over six years I’ve led a girl scout troop of Englewood girls and it has been a joy to watch these girls grow up and start pursuing their interests and think about their futures. We have loved raising our kids in this great community.
