Kjrsten Ruecker

My name is Kjrsten Ruecker.  This will be my fifth year at Kenton and my second year teaching 4th grade.  I’m from San Diego, California and moved to Denver four years ago with my husband and two dogs.  I spent my summer traveling and exploring Denver with my 2 year-old son Jasper. I have earned my Masters in Literacy Education from San Diego State University, where I also completed my bachelor degree. In my spare time I love to read (especially historical fiction), travel, hike, watch movies, drink coffee, frequent museums, bake, and relax with family.

My job is to accelerate the learning for every APS student, every day. I do my job by creating a sanctuary for eager minds where students and I participate as joint partners as we co-construct meaning and a shared reality.  My community needs me to do my job.
