Davian Askew

 Leadworthy

My name is Davian Askew. I taught Spanish at RMCA for a while and have been in both elementary and middle school. In middle school, I teach a leadership class called Leadworthy. Born in Georgia, I grew up here in Colorado where my love for education and teaching flourished. I am always excited to pass on life and character lessons to students and partner with parents for the greatest success!

Jackie Cirbo

Middle School Art

My name is Jackie Cirbo and I am so incredibly excited to be a part of the fifth grade team this year! I am entering my eleventh year in teaching and my third year here at Rocky Mountain Classical Academy. I was raised in Salt Lake City, Utah and moved to Colorado after my senior year of high school. I went to Colorado State University for my Undergrad and University of Northern Colorado for my Masters in Education. I jumped right into teaching and absolutely loved it.

Powell 

Liam Connerly

Middle School Latin

I’m Liam and I’ll be a first-year RMCA teacher beginning the fall of 2021! I gained my proficiency in multiple disciplines overtime, where I began undergraduate school at University of Puget Sound and went on to finish at Utah State University with a BS in Biomechanics and Minor in Latin Language and Teaching. Over the years of studying Latin, I fell further and further in love with the amount of information it gave me: greater command of language, understanding of etymology, medical/boticnical/legal/etc. terminology, and simply different modes of thinking… All of which I hope to pass on to my pupils! My passion for this “dead language” is outstanding and I derive my purpose in providing clarity to anything complicated or problematic for a student. In my free time, you can find me cycling, reading, working out, or working on my textbook, “Latin in Layman’s.”

 Middle School Music

I have been teaching music in Colorado for 15 years as a choir director, band director, and college music theory instructor.  I love teaching music through performance, so we sing and play a lot!  I earned my bachelor's degree from The Colorado College where I played jazz guitar, classical guitar, and saxophone.

I enjoy rubik's cubes, rock climbing, ice hockey, and basically anything outside!
