Our teachers place a big emphasis on social and emotional skills along with teaching the curriculum. Students are also exposed to art, music, technology, and physical education throughout the week. Learn more about the third grade curriculum below.
My name is Andi Perez, and I am one of the third grade teachers here at Kohl. I am going into my 8th year of teaching. I am so very excited to be a Kohl Colt, and can’t wait to meet all of our wonderful students and their families.
I grew up in Colorado Springs and have always had a love for the outdoors. I attended undergrad at Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado. There, I played soccer, did a lot of camping and backpacking, and did even more skiing! After graduating with my BA in elementary education, I moved to the Front Range to begin my teaching career. In 2019, I received my Masters of Education in Reading, with an added endorsement as a reading specialist.
I live with my boyfriend, Daniel, in Boulder with our dog (Lola) and our two cats (Meeko and Jasper). We spent most of our summer at our family house in Maine doing all the things we love: being with our family, sailing, and eating lots of lobstah!
As a teacher, I have three loves: a love of learning, a love of learners, and a love of bringing the first two loves together. I can’t wait to start learning with all of you!
Hello Kohl Colts! I am so excited to be at Kohl for another amazing year! I have been teaching at Kohl for 24 years– including teaching 5th grade, 1st grade, 3rd grade and library– and can’t imagine teaching anywhere else.
This summer I did many of the things that I love most:
I taught (yep, even in the summer I can’t resist teaching!).
I read. So far this year I have read 62 books out of my goal of 100.
I camped and hiked and enjoyed the beauty of Colorado.
I hung out with my family and friends. My son Calvin, his fiance Morgan, my daughter Maia, as well as my mom, my brother, my nephews and lots of friends all live in Colorado so it’s easy to find someone to spend time with. And let’s not forget Charlie. He is my 14 pound poodle and my favorite hiking buddy.
Believe it or not, I am a Colorado native who went to Boulder Valley schools from kindergarten on. I graduated from CU-Boulder before moving to Broomfield and becoming a teacher at Kohl. My kids both went to Kohl and my daughter still wears a Kohl Colts sweatshirt constantly! We are proud to be a family of Colts. I am so looking forward to a great year teaching 3rd grade at the best school ever. Go COLTS!
