Mrs. Michelle Grothe

4th Grade Teacher

I love being a fourth grade teacher at Ray E. Kilmer! I attended the University of Northern Colorado and received a Bachelors of Social Science with an Elementary Education endorsement. I taught third grade in Colorado Springs for several years before deciding to stay home and raise my two girls. My family and I enjoy hiking, biking, and skiing in our beautiful state! I returned to teaching fulltime five years ago and truly love fourth graders! I believe that all students can learn when given the right tools and when they have a teacher who believes in them.
