Welcome to Bear Creek Elementary School!

My name is Kim Briding and I am so excited to be your child's first grade teacher. We are going to have an amazing year full of discovery through a hands-on, interactive learning approach. I want students to come into my classroom each morning knowing that we are going to have a great day of learning together!

I have a Bachelor of Business Administration from McKendree College. I received a Master of Arts in Teaching from the University of Northern Colorado.  

My husband and I have been married for 22 years. We have 4 children, ages 19, 16, 13, and 9. So I have children in this district in elementary, middle and high school. My oldest daughter is in her second year at Denver University. We are a retired Air Force family, having moved here 14 years ago. I truly can't imagine raising a family anywhere else! 

Please contact me anytime. My email is You can also leave me a voicemail by contacting the school at (719) 488-4770. I will do my best to get back to you within 24 hours. 

I am looking so forward to this year! It is my hope that my students fall in love with learning, while building supportive friendships. I know each day will be full of joy, laughter, and genuine curiosity!
