Meet our 6th Grade Team!

Our amazing 6th grade teachers at Eagle Ridge, each specializing in their expertise, as 6th graders rotate much like they will do in Middle School.

Our amazing writing and science teacher, Jennifer Dierker, has been teaching in Douglas County for 18 years, and has been at ERE for 15 years. Jenn thinks it is so important that 6th graders learn about who they are as people, and that they're in control of where they are going. Jenn also loves this age group because they can be good thinkers, and can think abstractly. Jenn has 21 year old twins who went to Eagle Ridge, and now attend CU in Boulder. She loves spending time with them and her fiance, Paul. Her favorite place to be is at the beach, where she loves to read, relax and enjoy the waves.

Our wonderful reading and Social Studies teacher, Lisa Kwiatkowski, has returned to Eagle Ridge and is so excited to be back!  This is her 18th year in education and 13th year in Douglas County.  She earned her bachelor’s degree in English and graduate degree in Elementary Education from California State University of Long Beach.  She has three grown children, a daughter who is married living in Colorado Springs and two boys in college.  She loves being outdoors (hiking, gardening, paddleboarding, walking), spending time with her family, reading, baking, yoga, and teaching 6th grade!

Aaron McLean loves teaching sixth grade and has done so for the vast majority of his 19 year career. It is an extremely important year academically and socially for kids as they transition to middle school and the rigors of secondary school. He has taught in JeffCo, Cherry Creek, and many years in Douglas County, in both departmentalized and self-contained settings. The challenge of helping kids realize their potential in mathematics is very appealing to him. He has a wonderful wife of 18 years, and a 12 year old boy and 8 year old girl. Most of his off time can find him coaching his kids in soccer, fly-fishing the Rockies, and golfing with friends.
