Mr. Kris Leiting

Science Teacher

Assistant Varsity Football Coach

I'm excited to be part of the Palmer Ridge Family. This will be my 9th year of teaching and coaching, and my 5th in Colorado. I received my degree from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 2014. I became a teacher to help students become citizens that are honest, empathetic, and driven. I'm excited to be in a school with so much pride and an area with such an abundance of activities!

The best way to reach me is by email. I generally return them within 24 hours. I am available during my plan periods (1/4) or before/after school by appointment.
