Following her graduation from the Metropolitan State University of Denver with a Bachelor of Arts, and Lesley College with a Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction, Ms. Van Wagner enthusiastically pursued a career in education, having served as a teacher within the Denver Public Schools district since 1991.

Liggett between 1979 and 1981. Ms. Van Wagner had also held various positions at United Buckingham in Littleton from 1968 until 1979.
Ms. Van Wagner became involved in her profession after her exposure to a television program which discussed how kids were graduating from college, but were not reading at the adult and college level. A great advocate of reading, she found this phenomenon astounding. Ms. Van Wagner began tutoring, which eventually grew into the desire to become a school teacher. This was partially motivated and inspired by Dr. Carol Nichols, her teacher and mentor in an early childhood reading program.
