My name is Kristen Leuschner and I will be your child's Fifth Grade teacher. I am very excited to be doing what I love at such a wonderful place. My goal this year is for each student to learn in a stimulating and responsive learning environment. In my classroom, your child will feel secure, as well as challenged. It is my hope that each child in my class will exhibit a high degree of proficiency in all areas as well as develop a joy of learning that will endure. I have discovered that the truly magical part of my job is watching my kids’ faces light up when they discover they are capable of so many wonderful things.

This will be my tenth year at Rock Ridge.  I have taught 6th, 5th, and 3rd grade and I am excited to begin a new school year! I earned my Master’s degree in Elementary Education from Regis University. I also have a Bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science from Creighton University and a Master’s degree in Exercise Physiology from the University of Nebraska-Omaha. I enjoy spending time with my husband and our 2 sons.  When I am not at school, I can be found spending time with my amazing family, playing sports, watching a good movie, and following my beloved Denver Broncos!! 

I am thrilled to be starting this new year with your child. The best way to contact me is via email at You may also call the front desk at 303-387-5150.
