2nd Grade Team
I am a Colorado Native, born in Greeley Colorado. I graduated from UCCS with my Bachelors in Elementary Education with an emphasis in English. This is my second year at RMCA, and my 3rd year teaching! I love the RMCA Community and am excited for this new school year!
My name is Kayla Lehr and this is my first year teaching at RMCA. I just graduated from UCCS in May of 2019 with my Bachelors in Elementary Education with an emphasis in Geography. Prior to working at RMCA, I worked as a pre-school teacher for 3 years at PPCC and UCCS. I am a mom of three little boys, Troy, Shawn, and Addison and I enjoy living in this beautiful state of Colorado. I am happy to be at RMCA to start off my life-long passion of teaching.
I teach Kindergarten because I am very passionate about kids having a positive first experience with school and I love to see them start to read. This is my tenth year teaching because I love seeing kids grow in their love for learning, academics, and in their character. I've received my professional teaching credential in California, since that's my first home, and I will always love the Dodgers because of it (sorry Rockies fans). I've taught at a classical school before and I love to see children respond to their learning by reading and writing. I look forward to seeing growth in my students this year and coming along side this wonderful RMCA team to enhance the learning that takes place at our school.
My family is new to the Colorado Springs after my husband retired from the military recently and we love it! This is my 15th year teaching and my first year diving into Kindergarten. I also homeschooled my own two children for 4 years. I love to be outdoors and hike on a regular basis with my two golden retrievers. I am excited to be at RMCA and be a part of this school family.
