Welcome to Mr. Reams' Class
My name is Kenneth Reams, and I’m really excited to start my first year here at Ranch View Middle School. I graduated from University of Houston in 2014 with a degree in psychology. This is my 5th year as a teacher, and I have previously taught in Houston ISD at Baylor College of Medicine Biotech Academy at Rusk, a magnet school for students interested in health science. I’ve taught 7th/8th grade science for one year and three years of a special topics course called neuroscience for 6th grade.
My wife Heidi and I moved to Denver, Colorado in 2019 for a change of scenery and a new career opportunity for her. We have two babies, an orange tabby named Natalie and an Australian cattle dog named Cece. My wife and I are both huge technology nerds and gamers, and we love spending our time together cooking delicious vegan meals and exploring the beautiful world of Colorado with Cece.
