About Me

Welcome to 3rd grade! My name is Kristen Leuschner (pronounced Leshner) and I will be your child's 3rd grade teacher. I am very excited to be doing what I love at such a wonderful place. My goal this year is for each student to learn in a stimulating and responsive learning environment. In my classroom, your child will feel secure, as well as challenged. It is my hope that each child in my class will develop a joy of learning that will endure. I have discovered that the truly magical part of my job is watching my kids’ faces light up when they discover they are capable of so many wonderful things.

This will be my eleventh year of teaching. I have taught 3rd, 5th, and 6th grade and I am excited to begin a new school year! I earned my Master’s degree in Elementary Education from Regis University. I also have a Bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science from Creighton University and a Master’s degree in Exercise Physiology from the University of Nebraska-Omaha.

I am not a Colorado native as I grew up a Navy B.R.A.T. and we moved every two years. However, we always called Colorado home so after my dad retired we settled down in Colorado. I enjoy spending time with my husband, our 2 sons, and our black lab, Diesel. When I am not at school, I can be found spending time with my amazing family, watching my boys play sports, enjoying a Starbucks, and following my beloved Denver Broncos!!

I am thrilled to be starting this new year with your child. The best way to contact me is via email at Kristen.leuschner@dcsdk12.org.
