Welcome to Kindergarten!

Meet our teachers

Susie Rogers
Mrs. Susie Rogers
Mrs. Rogers is excited to start her 19th year of teaching her sweet Kindy friends, 14 of those years here at GRE! She is heading into her 30th year of teaching! Her passion and love is with those early learners. She received her bachelor's degree and teaching license from Regis University. She then got her master's degree in curriculum and instruction from the University of Colorado at Denver. She started her teaching career in third and fourth grade. She then found her love for teaching Kindergarten at Abiding Hope Preschool and Kindergarten, from 2000-2005. She has been at GRE since then. Mrs. Rogers's husband, Mike, is a software developer for Catapult Systems. Her family also includes daughter Molly (25), daughter Leah (23), and new son-in -law Sean, along with her dog Luigi! When she is not teaching, her passions include cycling and spin class, spending time with family, and gardening!

Ryckman Family

Mrs. Alex Ryckman
Mrs. Ryckman is so excited to start her sixth 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 15 and a sophomore at Columbine, and Ruthie is 12 and in seventh 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 15 years. In their free time they love to hang out at the pool, hike in the mountains or travel anywhere with a beautiful beach.
