Kindergarten Team


Celeste Francione

I was born in Illinois but I have lived in Colorado since I was in mid-kindergarten.  I have a degree in Elementary Education from Emmaus Bible College in Dubuque, Iowa.  I love elephants, purple, Pepsi, chocolate, crafting, animals, exploring new places, reading, and teaching.  This is my ninth year in education and seventh year teaching kindergarten at RMCA.  I absolutely love it! Kindergarten is so much fun and they grow so much throughout the year!


Ana James

My name is Anna James and this is my second year teaching Kindergarten here at RMCA! My husband, son and I moved from Wyoming last May and we are so happy to be here in the Springs and to be a part of this wonderful community here at RMCA. When not teaching, I love spending time with my family enjoying the outdoors. I love hiking, running and photography. I am so excited about this year and to be here at RMCA!


Raeli Mossbrucker

My name is Raeli Reyes and this is my first year at RMCA! This will be my second year teaching Kindergarten, which in my opinion, is the best grade! I am a Colorado native and could not imagine living anywhere else. I graduated from CSU-Pueblo with a Bachelor's Degree in Sociology. I have a one-year little boy named Silas. We enjoy spending time outside, camping, hiking, and playing in the water. I love staying busy, which is why Kindergarten is the grade for me. I am looking forward to this school year!

Welcome to RMCA!  This is my 13th year of teaching!   I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management from the University of Northern Colorado.  I worked for a credit union until I discovered my true passion is working with kids.  I went back to school at the University of Phoenix where I received my Master’s Degree in Elementary Education. I am truly blessed to work here at RMCA!  I look forward to partnering with you this school year!
