2nd Grade Team
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.
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.
This is my twelfth year teaching. I’ve taught kindergarten, third, fourth, and have been a substitute teacher. I have three children of my own at RMCA because I believe in what we accomplish here. I am excited to teach second grade! I’ve subbed a lot in the second grade classrooms and have taught my own daughter the curriculum during remote learning. I am passionate about seeing your child grow academically and in their character. It is a privilege to have your child in my classroom this year and thank you for partnering with me in this journey.
This is my first year at RMCA and I am so excited to be part of this amazing community. 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 am looking forward to a great year!
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!
