Hello, my name is Ian Kenison.

I will be teaching fifth grade this year after previously teaching sixth grade for the last four years at Copper Mesa Elementary in Douglas County. I have a Master’s Degree in Elementary Education from the Metropolitan State University of Denver and an undergrad in Economics from the University of Colorado – Boulder (Go Buffs!).

I am a native of Colorado, who loves the outdoors (skiing, hiking, camping, etc.), sports (Go Rockies, Broncos, Avalanche, and Nuggets), music, a good book and spending time with my wife and three children.

I have always loved helping students explore and experience the wonders of our world and truly appreciate the struggles and successes of education. I believe every child is gifted and talented in their own way and I enjoy the curiosities and new perspectives that each student brings to my classroom.

Thank you for allowing me to be a part of the Kendallvue Community and I look forward to our journey together.

Hello! I’m Ellie Stok. This will be my first year teaching and I am so excited to be on the 5th grade team! I grew up in Minneapolis, Minnesota and just graduated in May from Iowa State University with a BA in Elementary Education. 

I am new to the state of Colorado and look forward to taking advantage of all the state has to offer. When I’m not teaching, I like spending time outside, exploring coffee shops, hanging with friends/family, going to concerts, cooking and cheering on the ISU Cyclones and MN Vikings! 

I believe that in order to establish a positive classroom environment, it is crucial to develop strong relationships with students that build on their interests, curiosities, and strengths. I want each student to leave school every day feeling like they belonged and they were valued. My goal is for every student to view themselves as a learner and to provide them with the support to reach their full potential. I look forward to a year full of growth, laughter, new experiences (camping!) and establishing a love for learning.
