I would like to introduce myself, and welcome your child to 4th grade! My name is Kathryn Kramer, and I will be your child’s 4th 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-two years ago. We absolutely love the Parker community. Tom and I have two children. Logan is 19 and is working his way through college. Jeffrey is 15 and a sophomore at Chaparral High School. Our family enjoys hockey, swimming, bicycling, water skiing, and snow skiing. Hiking, and camping is a time for relaxation and finding peace, as a family, in the great outdoors.
I have been teaching for the past twenty-six 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 am excited to come to work each day, teach all curricular areas, and help students make connections with what they are learning in the classroom and in their daily lives. I hope the enthusiasm and love of learning that I bring to our classroom carries over to my students each day.
As we embark on our year long journey together, it is my goal to create an environment that is safe, nurturing, and kind. In addition, I want students to believe in themselves 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. Fourth grade is a year of tremendous growth, increased responsibility, and an opportunity for your child to think critically. 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 alongside your family to provide opportunities for your child to grow and flourish academically, emotionally, and socially. I am looking forward to a wonderful year.
