Melissa Kundrat has been teaching at Coyote Ridge Elementary since 2015. Outside of Adams 12, Melissa has taught at the elementary level in California and Colorado since 2001. She holds a BA in Liberal Arts with a minor in Psychology from California Lutheran University. Melissa has a literacy endorsement on her teaching license, also from California Lutheran University.
Melissa's philosophy includes the idea that educational success for a student can be compared to a three-legged stool. One leg being teacher support, one leg being parent support, and the third being the child. All three legs work together to promote the highest success for the child. One of Melissa's goals is to instill a life-long love for learning in each of her students.
Melissa resides in Broomfield with her husband, daughter, and their golden retriever. She enjoys being outdoors, playing sports, and traveling with her family.
