Instructional Coordinators

Holly Sexton 

Preschool/Instructional Coordinator (PK-2)

Holly Sexton  Holly and Family

I am teaching morning preschool this year as well as supporting preschool through 2nd-grade teachers as an Instructional Coordinator. This is my 23rd year in education. I have taught preschool all the way up to college students and adult learners. I have most recently taught kindergarten and been an Instructional Specialist for Jeffco’s Early Childhood department. I truly love teaching and especially our youngest learners.

I live with my family in Littleton. We have 3 children ages 22, 19, and 11. We have 2 sweet dogs, 2 turtles, and a bearded dragon. I love animals! I also love to travel and you will often see me paddle boarding on any lake in the area.

It is my passion to work with young learners. I learn so much from them every day. I believe that every child deserves an excellent learning environment, a place to explore and discover and make friends. I work hard to support your child in their cognitive, language, social/emotional, academic, and physical growth. I believe children learn through play. We will have a blast together! Thank you for sharing your children with me.

Hi, Kendallvue community!  I am Liz Thomas and I will continue this year as the Advanced Math teacher for 3rd through 5th grade as well as the Instructional Coordinator for the Intermediate grades.  I have been lucky enough to be a part of the Kendallvue community for 13 years now and look forward to many more.  I knew that I wanted to work with children so I graduated from the University of Colorado with a Bachelor's degree in Psychology thinking that I would become a child psychologist.  After observing in classrooms (and loving it) I changed my mind and went back to school to receive my Masters in Information and Learning Technology along with my teaching degree. Later on, I received my Administrative license from Regis University.  I have had many different roles in education including Assistant Principal, Instructional Coach, and classroom teacher for many different grade levels.  By far this has been my most fulfilling role.  I am constantly challenged to come up with new ways to incite my students to think deeper and apply their learning in new, real-world situations and at the same time I get to work with and support teachers with their instruction.

I am one of those rare “true natives”.  I have always loved the wonderful seasons Colorado offers us (especially the winter).  When I was younger, my family always spent a lot of time in the mountains and even now it is one of my favorite places.  I have a wonderful husband named Bill and 2 adorable fur babies named Bailey and Ralphie.  The 4 of us love to sneak away to the mountains whenever possible to enjoy all that they have to offer.

I believe that in order for students to learn, they first need to feel safe and valued.  When this is established, students are more willing to take risks and persevere to learn more while applying their learning in situations outside of the classroom.  I also believe that learning experiences reach so much further than just the traditional brick and mortar walls of the classroom.  I am so excited about all that we are offering our students at Kendallvue such as the overnight learning experiences, implementing technology and innovation, as well as performance tasks.  I am so excited for our students and their varied learning opportunities and experiences for this coming up school year.  It is going to be a great year!  I look forward to seeing all of you in a few weeks!
