Mrs Bauer's Kindergarten

Hi there,
I am Mrs. Bauer and I am so excited to be your first grade teacher and to work with my  amazing team.

This is my 15th year in DCSD and my fourth year at Redstone Elementary.  I have been lucky to have a very diverse career as an educator. I have been a Learning Interventionist and have taught 3rd, 6th grade Language Arts, and most recently Kindergarten.

My family and I have lived in Highlands Ranch for 17 years and we love everything about Colorado.  I have been married to Adam for 26 years and we have 2 boys.  Andrew (24) works at our local King Soopers (bless him for being an essential worker), and Grant (20) goes to SD Mines and is studying chemical engineering.  We share our home with 2 furry people.  Mac is our Border Collie and Sydney is our Aussie.  We love to go for runs, hikes, and bike rides.

I am passionate about being a teacher and love to watch my students succeed academically, socially, and emotionally.  I value to relationships with parents and families.  My belief is that we are a village and helping each other is essential for a positive learning journey.

Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have ANY questions or concerns.


Have a wonderful Summer Break!!
I am so excited to see you August 9th!!
