Hello Parents and Kindergarteners! 

My name is Payton Poalillo. This is my first year teaching and first year at Rock Ridge Elementary. I am originally from the Parker/Elizabeth area and am thrilled to be back here  doing what I love. I graduated from Colorado State University with a Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education. 

My individualized teaching philosophy stems from building meaningful and respectful relationships before anything else. I truly believe that with a supportive, honest and loving relationship with each child, learning occurs naturally. 

I feel so extremely lucky to be a part of your students lives, as well as a team member here at Rock Ridge. I am really looking forward to our time together. Please feel free to reach out with questions or thoughts you might have as we journey through Kindergarten together!
