Fourth Grade Team

Rachael Alford

 


Hello! My name is Rachael Alford and I am so excited to be joining the Kendallvue Elementary family this year. I started my teaching career in the Green Mountain area, and for the past 5 years I've been teaching in the mountains. Although I love tshe Colorado mountains, I am eager to start a new journey down the hill, again. I have taught Kindergarten, 1st Grade, 4th Grade, and now 2nd and 3rd remote! Teaching is my passion and I absolutely love what I do each and every day. 

Along with loving to teach, I also have a love for the outdoors. I enjoy fishing, gardening, hiking, boating, snowboarding and traveling. My favorite place to be is in the middle of the ocean deep sea fishing, with my kids and husband. I have 2 kids, Troy who is 18 and Joyce who is almost 16. We have 3 dogs: Lucky, Duchess, and Belle, along with a leopard gecko named Joe.
 
I have always said that I teach like I parent. I have high expectations for my children and for my students. I believe that people learn best 2 ways: through hands on experiences and through making mistakes. When I teach, I get outside of the classroom as much as possible so the kids have the opportunity to do more 'out of the box' type of learning. 

I am excited to see what this school year brings, and am even more excited to watch your kids grow! Please feel free to reach out for any reason!

Stevie Armstrong

Armstrong family

Hello! My name is Stevie Armstrong. I grew up in Littleton, CO and went all through Jeffco Schools. I got my undergraduate degree in Human Development with a minor in Elementary Education at Metro. I also recently graduated with my masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Literacy Instruction from CU Boulder. This will be my fourth year teaching at Kendallvue, and my third year in 4th grade. 

I absolutely love teaching at Kendallvue! The community is amazing and the kiddos are such a huge part of that! I could not be more grateful for the opportunity to work with your kids each day. They are constantly teaching me new things and always putting a smile on my face. I love helping kids to understand things they never thought they could!

Outside of school, I am very busy! I work at Earth Treks Climbing Gym, which is also where I spend a lot of my time rock climbing and doing yoga. I get outside every chance I get with my husband AJ and our black lab Sawyer. We go rock climbing, hiking, kayaking, skiing, road biking, and love spending time just enjoying the wonderful Colorado Mountains.
