Mrs. Leah Braaten

Welcome to 5th grade!

My name is Leah Braaten and this is my fifth year at Palmer Lake Elementary school. Prior to Palmer Lake Elementary, I taught for three years in Eaton, Colorado as a third grade teacher. I love being a Panther and being within the Palmer Lake Community. The outdoors is my preferred place to be and I love hiking, running, and skiing.  I am eager to learn more about you and your students throughout the year!
In our classroom we will focus on building relationships, strengthening our classroom culture, and how to collaborate with others. I will regularly post updates, announcements, and resources to this site and our Classroom Dojo. If you ever have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me via Classroom Dojo, email, or phone. My office hours are 8:15-8:45am and 4:00-4:30pm, I will try my best to respond to all communications within 24 hours.

I am looking forward to having a great year!
