Chris Markle, Kindergarten Lead

 My name is Christina Markle and I am a kindergarten teacher. I love RCA so much that I am starting my 25th year here! Teaching kindergarten is the best because the children are cute and enthusiastic and the growth they make in a year is amazing!

 I grew up in South Dakota and moved to Colorado 25 years ago! I do love going back home to see my Mom and Dad and other family members.

Spending time with my family is very important to me! We like to hike, go on trips, go to church, and have game nights together. My dogs Baxter and Rex go everywhere with us since they are a part of our family!  I also love reading and vegetable and flower gardening!

A Few of my Favorite Things:

·       Favorite Color: Green, Purple and Yellow

·       Favorite Season: Spring

·       Favorite Food: Chocolate and crab legs

·       Favorite Sport: Basketball

·       Favorite Hobby: Gardening

·       Favorite Animal: Dogs (of course!)
