Lehr

Kayla Lehr Heggem

 

This is my third year teaching at RMCA. I 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 happily married and a mom of three boys, Troy, Shawn, and Addison who I enjoy spending time outside with. I am happy to call RMCA my home away from home!!

Padilla

Alysia Padilla

This is my second year at RMCA and I am so excited to begin another amazing year at this school. I graduated from the University of Northern Colorado with my Bachelors in Elementary Education with an endorsement in ESL. I have lived in Colorado Springs most of my life, and I am originally from Albuquerque, New Mexico. I love being outdoors, calligraphy, the Broncos, and spending time with my family, especially my two year old nephew. I am looking forward to a great year!

Unger

Jenna Unger

My name is Jenna Unger and this is my first year teaching 2nd grade at RMCA. I graduated from the University of Northern Colorado with a degree in Elementary Education and an emphasis in New Literacies. I'm originally from Aurora, Colorado where I lived with my mom, dad, and younger brother. I absolutely love being outdoors where I can hike, paddleboard, and explore! I also love to read and a couple of my favorite authors are Roald Dahl and Chris Van Allsburg. I plan on including a lot of that in my classroom this year. I'm so excited to begin my teaching journey at RMCA and to work with such an incredible staff and community!
