Mrs. Kristin Rintala


Hello! I am SO EXCITED to welcome your child to 5th Grade at Lewis-Palmer Elementary School! I can't wait to get to know your child and to help them to learn and grow this year. I am honored to be a 5th-grade teacher and a part of such a terrific staff at Lewis-Palmer Elementary!  

I earned my undergraduate degree in Environmental Science and Digital Media Studies from the University of Denver (and played volleyball). I earned my graduate and masters degrees in Leadership in Science / Elementary Instruction from the University of Colorado at Denver. I have worn a variety of hats in my teaching career. I have taught high school science, preschool, and 3rd grade, and have been a substitute in every grade level, as well as a high school volleyball coach. This will be my first year teaching 5th grade and I am so excited! I strongly believe that being an educator is the best profession. I can't wait to share my love for learning with your child and support growth both academically and emotionally.   

My favorite thing in my spare time is to be around my wonderful husband and my 3 kids! I also love being outdoors, attending my kids' soccer/volleyball games, playing in volleyball leagues, coaching, hiking, playing sports, reading, watching movies, playing with my dog Jack, and baking.

For the quickest response to your questions please email. I try to check email within 24 hours. Thank you for sharing your child with me!
