Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Rachel Zierlein

My name is Rachel Zierlein and I am SO excited to be working in Kindergarten!  I wanted to introduce myself and tell you a little about me.


I am a Colorado native and lived in Lafayette, Louisville, and Kampala, Uganda as a child.  I married my husband, Brian, in 1999 and made our home in Firestone. We have two boys, Nate, age 9 who is going into 4th grade, and Gabe, 13,  who will be in 8th grade!


I have always had a passion for teaching.  It first started when I was 12 years old living in Kampala, Uganda with my family.  I would volunteer at the preschool through Kindergarten across the street from our apartment in Kampala.  That passion led me to study at Metro State, and I have taught elementary education for 9 years, including art, history, 2nd grade, and 5th grade. I am really looking forward to teaching Kindergarten this year!
