Meet the Teachers

Mrs. Fahlstedt

I am looking forward to another amazing year at PRA!  I received my bachelors degree from Arizona State University and my teaching license from Metropolitan State University.  I live in Centennial with my husband. We are the parents of four amazing kids.  Our youngest child (daughter) is a junior at Colorado State University. The youngest boy is living at home and attending the University of Colorado at Denver.  Our two eldest sons are making their way in the world.  I love reading, ice hockey and spending time with family.  Teaching is one of the most rewarding careers I could ever imagine and I am reminded of this every day when I step in the classroom and see their smiling faces.  I think second grade is such an exciting year with amazing growth for students. I look forward to fostering a passion for learning within your children and getting to know all of you.

Mrs. Gambill

I have lived in Colorado for the past twenty five years.  I love it here.  I graduated from Highlands Ranch High School.  I love this community. 

Before graduating from college I spent 18 months in Guatemala serving a mission for my church. While there I became fluent in the Spanish language.  Upon my return I graduated from the University of Utah in Elementary Education.  As a child I always admired my teachers and knew that someday, I too would become an educator.  I am grateful for that insight I had as a child, as I feel rewarded daily for being a part of this profession. 

I started at Platte River Academy right out of college as an instructional aide.  That same year, I got married and became Mrs. Gambill.  That was 14 years ago!  Since then, I have taught both first and second grade and I love it here. 

I have two young children Emery (8) in third grade, and Mason (5) 

who is in kindergarten this year

.  I love spending time with my family and cherish the job I have at home, being a Mother.
