Hello sixth grade families!

I am so thrilled to start my first year at Coyote Creek and teaching 6th! I am originally from Texas where I started my teaching career teaching 3rd, then 4th grades. We moved to CO two summers ago and I began teaching 5th at Franktown Elementary. My favorite part of teaching is creating wonderful relationships with my students. I love to listen to their stories, share in their victories, be there for them when life gets tough, laugh, play, and, of course, learn together everyday.  They teach me as much as I teach them!!

 

I have 2 kids that will also be attending Coyote Creek: Leona (2nd) and Baird Jr (pre-k). My husband, Baird, is my biggest supporter and he loves to be involved and visit the classroom whenever possible. I’m excited to work with my new amazing teammate, Holly Lehr, and the rest of the staff at CCE.  I look forward to collaborating with all of you and cheering on our students!!

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 graduate of 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.
