Mrs. Kaylyn Kingman
I'm a native to Colorado, born and raised by young parents in Pueblo with a few different spots along the way (Georgia and Hawaii) as my dad served in the Army as an Infantryman and on the wrestling team. Both of my parents are coaches, educators and administrators. I attended the University of Northern Colorado with a scholarship to play Division I softball (outfield). While at UNC I earned my Bachelor's of Science in Secondary Education with an emphasis in Earth Science. In addition to earning my degree I met my husband, Neal Kingman, who is a Greeley West alumni. Neal earned his Bachelor's in Business Management while on a scholarship to play Division I basketball for the bears. Currently, Neal works within the community at the Bank of Colorado. Neal and I have the honor of raising three children together, two of which are fraternal boy and girl twins in addition to one fur baby (miniature schnauzer-Leo).
I'm in my eleventh year of teaching and I've had experiences in teaching Pre-AP science classes, integrated arts science classes, Earth Sciences, Biology, Astronomy and Meteorology. I've earned my Masters of Education in Learning and Technology from Western Governor's University in 2018. I will complete my Education Specialist Degree from Arkansas State University this December. I've been recognized as Teacher of the Month from Loveland Rotary, Teacher of the Week through 99.9 and was nominated for Colorado Teacher of the Year and Thompson School District Teacher of the Year in 2019.
