Hello! My name is Rebecca Von Duerring, and I am thrilled to be a first grade teacher at Kenton Elementary! I fulfilled my childhood dream of becoming a teacher and attended The University of Arizona to obtain my degree in Elementary Education. After college, I moved back to Denver, where I enjoy spending time outside, being with my family, reading, and taking Pilates classes. I previously spent five years teaching kindergarten in both Douglas County and APS prior to joining Kenton’s first grade team.
It is my priority to instill a joy for learning in each of my students. In our classroom, we practice using a "growth-mindset” which focuses on dedication, perseverance, and effort to reach a higher potential. I love the dedicated and passionate Kenton staff and community. I am looking forward to working with your first graders and seeing their growth throughout the year. Please contact me with any questions, comments, or concerns.
My job is to accelerate the learning for every APS student, every day. I do my job by instilling a love of learning and fostering a positive outlook about school by providing interactive, enriching, and meaningful experiences. My community needs me to do my job.<
