Welcome to Kindergarten! My name is Paula Denning and I love kindergarten; it is so much fun! I have been teaching for 21 years; I have taught grades Kinder to 8th grade and haven’t found a grade I didn’t enjoy teaching! I love hiking, hanging out at the pool, and spending time with my dog, Baxter!
My name is Anastasia Flores. I am a second-year kindergarten teacher at Queen Palmer, but I have worked with kindergarten for the last three years. My family and I have lived all across the country. Now with my husband out of the service we have been lucky enough to plant our roots this year and call Colorado Springs home. I have a son who attends school here at QP and a baby girl who is still at home. Some things I love to do are reading, hiking, and watching Marvel movies. Some things I love are my family, Target, and coffee.
My name is Paula Springer. I was born and raised in Michigan. After graduating high school, I joined the U.S. Army where I met my husband. I decided to leave the Army after serving for 5 years to raise a family. I have 2 adult children and 3 grandbabies. I have been in education for 19 years. I began my career in Special Education. I have been part of the Kindergarten team for 7 years and absolutely love it!! My interests outside of the classroom include camping, fishing, boating, motorcycle riding, hiking, skiing, and spending time with my family and friends.
Hello! My name is Lynda Ratliff. I am a Colorado Springs native. I have two adult children and one grandchild. This is my 18th year working at Queen Palmer. In case you are curious, all 18 years have been in kindergarten. I really love working with those littles! When I can, I enjoy spending time in our garden or going hiking. I am also an avid reader. I am excited for this new school year and the opportunity to welcome back previous students, meet new students and hopefully be able to add excitement to their learning experience.
