What My Kindergartner Will Learn

Kindergarten Teachers

Julie Dalton

I am a happily married Colorado Springs native with two teenage children. I am a graduate of Thomas B. Doherty High School and the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology. I have worked in the Core Knowledge Classical charter school environment for eleven years. I started as a Teacher’s Aide for Kindergarten and First Grade then transitioned to a Testing Aide focused on data gathering via standardized testing methods. I returned to my love of working in the classroom with Kindergarten students when I started at Imagine Classical Academy Indigo Ranch as an Instructional Aide in 2013. I became the half-day Kindergarten teacher in the fall of 2014.  I have taught full day Kindergarten 2015-to present. Outside of school I enjoy reading, gardening, scrap-booking, and baking.

This is my first year teaching Kindergarten at Imagine Classical Academy and also at a public school. I am so excited for this new adventure. I have taught previously in an early childhood setting for ten years and am looking forward to this next journey. I currently have my Bachelors degree in Early Childhood Education but am working on my Masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction.
With three kids of my own at home I feel like teaching is truly my full time job and I wouldn’t trade it for the world.

I am thrilled to be in my third year at Imagine Classical Academy! Though it is only my third year at Imagine, this is officially my sixth year in the classroom. This is going to be my first year doing half day Kindergarten, and I am excited to take on the challenge. I was born and raised right here in Colorado Springs. After high school I moved away to attend Colorado State University in Fort Collins, CO (GO RAMS!) following which I moved to Denver where I taught preschool for 3 years. After leaving Denver, I took two years off to open a family business and start my family. Being out of the classroom was hard and I have felt my heart pulling my back over the past two years. So here I am! I am so glad that I have found my way to Imagine and I am excited for the year ahead of us. I truly believe that we are a team on this journey so I welcome any input you have for me.

Hello my name is Moriah Stroh. I have been at Imagine Classical Academy since spring of 2016. I started as a First grade teacher and then switched to Kindergarten. I enjoy teaching students to love school.

I have always enjoyed helping others succeed starting with my years in 4-H teaching others how to show and care for their animals. I strayed from teaching in order to get a BS in Accounting at DeVry but once I started my own family I realized what I was missing. I rejoined 4-H as a leader and absolutely loved helping kids succeed at the Fair. Once my own children where old enough to be in school I volunteered and taught lessons in a virtual school CO-OP where I taught 8 to 15 students once a week. I then decided to take the leap and go back to school to get a Masters in Elementary Education.

I am excited to have this chance to partner with you in order to build your child for our future!
