Kris Kaplinski

I have been a teacher since 1996, currently I am a 6th grade teacher at Aspen Middle School.  I began teaching at Aspen Middle School in 2001 serving as a 6th grade teacher and later the Support Specialist.  I have a master's degree from Seattle Pacific University in Education Administration and a principal's license.  My teaching certifications include National Board Certification as a Middle Childhood Generalist, as well as Colorado endorsement in secondary science and elementary education.  My philosophy is rooted in the firm belief that each child in our community is unique, can learn, and contributes positively to our school.   


One of the classes that I teach is called Project Challenge: Check out the AMS Project Challenge Website
