The 1st grade team at LAES is brand new this year!

Toni Laurent is a LAHS graduate with two bachelor's degrees from CSU-Pueblo - mass communications and sociology. She is brand new to education. So far, her favorite thing about teaching is the energy that the kids have! They are excited to learn and very curious in first grade. It's a wonderful feeling spending the day with them teaching, learning and exploring.

Cassandra Siefkas graduated from the University of Northern Colorado with licenses to teach K-6th Elementary Ed, K-12th English Learners and K-12th Spanish. Her favorite teaching memory is having high school students tell her that they were using their Spanish at work and in other classes. Additionally, parents and local employers were praising the students for their knowledge of Spanish - Teacher Win!
