Mrs. Dara Cunliffe

Special Education Instructional Paraprofessional


I enjoy being part of the wonderful Kilmer community. As a special education paraprofessional, I work with children who need additional assistance in their learning styles. To me, each child is a unique individual with their own gifts to be explored, supported and tutored.

I was raised in Coxsackie, New York and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Health Education/Community Health from Russell Sage College in Troy, New York. I have been a Guest Teacher on and off for District 38 for 18+ years. I hold a CO Initial Teacher’s license for Elementary Education (K-6), Health Ed (K-12), Physical Ed (K-12) and Special Education Generalist (5-21). I have worked on and off in the school systems and the business arena since my husband and I moved to Colorado Springs during the fall of 1990. I have two children who have attended District 38. In my free time you can catch me working out or hiking in the beautiful Front Range parks and trails.
