Hello and welcome to 6th grade. I’m so excited to start another great year at Coyote Creek, and I can’t wait to meet the new students!


This will be my third year at Coyote Creek and my sixth year of teaching. I previously taught in Grand Junction, Colorado. I’ve taught third grade, fourth grade, and now sixth grade. I have to say, sixth grade has by far been my favorite grade to teach. Sixth graders are so fun, and I love the curriculum and educational discussions you can have with students at this age. 


My husband and I moved to the Denver area two years ago from Grand Junction, Colorado, and we absolutely love living on the eastern side of the state! We were both born and raised in Grand Junction, and that is where I graduated from Colorado Mesa University in 2013 with a Bachelor's degree in English Literature and Writing. In 2013, I graduated with a post-graduate degree in Education. Then in 2016, I graduated with my Master's degree in Education. 


When I'm not teaching, I love spending time on one of my favorite hobbies, genealogy. I help facilitate an Italian genealogy group that I am very proud of. I also try to spend as much time as I can writing, getting outdoors, and of course, shopping!


I’m looking forward to a great year of learning and fun! Please feel free to contact me at sdetton@dcsdk12.org.

Welcome to 6th Grade!!  I am so excited to be working with this new group of 6th graders!  I am looking forward to Outdoor Ed and working with your child in Language Arts and Social Studies. This will be a year of progress and development. 

I am a native of Colorado and a graduate of Cherry Creek High School. When attending Chapman University in Orange, California  I studied music education and earned a Bachelor of Music Degree.  This will be my 19th year at Coyote Creek Elementary,  and I previously taught in Littleton Public Schools. I have taught 5th and 6th grades and have even had experience with 1st and 2nd grade.  After being in the classroom and seeing how valuable technology is for our 21st Century learners, I went back to school and earned a Masters Degree in Instructional Technology and have participated in the Digital Educator and Ed Tech Academy in Douglas County Schools.

 I love being a teacher and am from a family of teachers. In fact, my married name comes from the German meaning "teacher". My son is a senior at Thunder Ridge High School and interested in science, playing his saxophone, and theater. My husband is a chemist and enjoys biking and gardening. We have lived in Highlands Ranch for 20 years and enjoy the trails and community it provides. 

In my spare time, I enjoy biking, spending time with family, and being outdoor enjoying photography.  My particular interest is landscape because the beauty of our world never ceases to  amaze me.

I am so excited to be working with you and your child this year and provide experiences and opportunities to help each one build life skills and tools that will enable them to be successful at whatever they undertake.

Please contact me at hllehr@dcsdk12.org at any time. 


Again, I look forward to working with you and your child to make this year the best it can be.

Hello Students and Parents!  My name is Jessica Vigil and I am so excited to be joining the Coyote Creek Elementary school 6th grade team. 


This will be my second year of teaching. I spent last year teaching 6th grade science at Rocky Heights Middle School and although I loved every minute of it I am excited to get back into the elementary setting. 


When I am not teaching I enjoy spending time with my family enjoying the great outdoors and all that Colorado has to offer. I love to camp, run, bike and take my dog Norman for walks.  I have a wonderful husband and two children ages 12 and 10.
