Dear Parents and Student ~
I would like to introduce myself, and welcome your child to 3rd grade! My name is Kathryn Kramer, and I will be your child’s 3rd grade teacher. This year we will embark on an incredible journey together and I look forward to meeting you with great anticipation and excitement!
My husband, Tom, and I moved to Parker twenty-three years ago. We absolutely love the Parker community. Tom and I have two children. Logan is 20 and is working his way through college. Jeffrey is 16 and a junior at Chaparral High School. Our family enjoys traveling, hockey, swimming, bicycling, water skiing, and snow skiing. Hiking and camping are a time for relaxation and finding peace, as a family, in the great outdoors.
I have been teaching for the past twenty-seven years and have a Master’s degree from Regis University. I have taught 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades here in Douglas County, as well as in Littleton Public Schools. Gold Rush is the best family!
Teaching is my passion! I strive to provide an environment that is encouraging, stimulating, collaborative, as well as fun. As we embark on our year long journey together, it is my goal to create an environment that is safe, nurturing, and kind. One where we build a community in which friendships flourish, and empathy and respect are given. In addition, I want students to believe in themselves, have a growth mind-set, take ownership of their learning, and reach their true potential. I will encourage your child to take risks, advocate for themselves, do their best, and to be a lifelong learner. Third grade is a year of tremendous growth, increased responsibility, and an opportunity for your child to think critically.
A successful learning environment involves teachers, students, parents, and the community. Open communication is extremely important as we will be working as a team. My door is always open. If at any time you have questions or concerns, please let me know. I am excited to be working along-side your family to provide opportunities for your child to grow and flourish academically, emotionally, and socially. I am looking forward to a wonderful year.
