Meet our Kindergarten Team!

Meet the terrific trio who are Eagle Ridge Elementary’s Kindergarten team-Mandy Symons, Karah Mossbrucker and Allison Dewolf!

Nine year veteran of ERE, Mandy Symons got her start as the Director of the Eagle Care Program. She is entering her third year teaching Kindergarten at Eagle Ridge. Mandy loves the little ones and appreciates how eager they are every day to learn and to be at school. Mandy says that “ERE is a family. The kids are amazing and we have a supportive and wonderful parent community.” A yoga enthusiast and country music fan, Mandy is a former Jayhawk and originally from Kansas.

With fourteen years of teaching Kindergarten at Eagle Ridge, Allison DeWolf is excited to start a new year at Eagle Ridge!  When asked to give advice to young families, Allison always encourages parents to read to their children and to instill a love of learning at the youngest of ages. After being at ERE for quite some time, Allison has seen Eagle Ridge transform over the years. Perhaps the biggest change has been with the advent of the 7 Habits. It has created a daily focus of leadership used by all of the community. When not teaching or shuttling her two busy children to competitive soccer and cheer, you will find Allison on the tennis courts. Allison is headed to the playoffs for one of her tennis leagues at the 3.5 level.


Karah Mossbrucker is a Colorado native who comes to us with two years of teaching in Jefferson County. She transformed our old technology space into an amazing Kindergarten space for our AM/PM students! Karah describes Kindergartners as a “blank canvas” and believes that it is vital to get these little ones excited to start school, eager to learn and lay a foundation for essential skills that will allow to be successful in subsequent grades. In her spare time, Karah enjoys spending time with her dog, a Great Dane puppy named Beasley, and her boyfriend. She likes to hike, cheer on the Broncos and spend time with her family and friends.
