Ms. Anna-Karin Joachim
Early Childhood Special Educator
Hello Lewis-Palmer Elementary Community!
I am thrilled to be returning to my role as the Early Childhood Special Education teacher for the LPES Preschool Program. My own two children began their school careers here in the LPES Preschool Program so it is very near and dear to my heart. This is my 4th year in the LPES preschool and my 5th year in Early Childhood Education. I am currently pursuing my Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Special Education from the University of Northern Colorado. I am passionate about working with young children to build their self-confidence, support their social and emotional development and spark their curiosity and love of learning. I believe in meeting every child where they are at developmentally to support and encourage their unique abilities.
Originally a California girl, my husband and I moved to Colorado over a decade ago to raise our children with a love of nature. When we’re not busy in the LP community, we love hiking, biking, camping and catching a show at Red Rocks.
