Hello students & parents! My name is Kayla Pritchett and this is my second year at STEM School Highlands Ranch. I am excited to be returning to such an amazing school. I teach 8th grade History as well as 9th grade Geography & Government. I earned my BA in Psychology and minor in Philosophy from the University of Colorado at Boulder. After graduating from CU, I earned my BA in History and received my secondary teaching license from Metropolitan State University in Denver.
I am a Colorado native and grew up in Littleton. There, I met my high school sweetheart and now husband of three years. After graduating from CU, I moved back to Littleton and had the opportunity to be an Education Assistant here at STEM. I quickly realized that I had a passion for history and wanted to work with kids, so I headed back to school.
In 2016, my husband Cameron and I welcomed our first baby Daxton Taylor. He is the light of our lives and we LOVE being parents. Watching how quickly he is absorbing information is a new pastime and we are now teaching him sign language! We also have a 6 year old boxer named Boston who is full of entertainment and energy.
Outside of the classroom, I love to be with friends and family, traveling, reading (and rereading Harry Potter), hiking, crafts, exploring the outdoors and watching sports (Go Broncos, Red Sox & Buffaloes!).
