Meet our teachers

Ms. Meyer's family
Ms. Sandra Meyer
Ms. Meyer is in love with everything Snoopy as you can see when you enter her classroom! This is her 15th year at Governor's Ranch Elementary and 20th year as a teacher, previously teaching in NY before moving to Colorado with her family. She discovered her passion for teaching while working as an accountant after graduating from Le Moyne College, working with new accountants in an educational capacity in addition to her accounting work. She made the decision to attend Russell Sage College and earned her Masters in Education and Reading. Ms. Meyer has three children, Sara (27), also a teacher in Jeffco, Becca (24), a graduate of CSU, and Matthew (22), a senior accounting major at DU. When not at school, Ms. Meyer loves spending time with her kids, having family dinners with them and extended family in the area, reading, and walking her three dogs, Bella (10), Zoey (5), and Auburn (2).

 Ryckman Family  Mrs. Alex Ryckman
Mrs. Ryckman is so excited to start her seventh year teaching Kindergarten at GRE! She received her bachelor's degree as well as her teaching license in Early Childhood Education at Metropolitan State College of Denver (where she met her amazing husband Tim, an art teacher in Douglas County) and her master's degree from Lesley University in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Literacy. She began her career in Englewood where she taught first and second grade. When her first child was born she left teaching for ten years to stay home with him (Jack is now 16 and a junior at Columbine, and Ruthie is 13 and in eighth grade at D’Evelyn). Both of her kids went to school at GRE and she knew that if she ever went back to teaching, her dream job would be teaching at GRE because of the amazing staff, students and community! She and her family have lived in Governor's Ranch for 16 years. In their free time they love to hang out at the pool, hike in the mountains or travel anywhere with a beautiful beach.
