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 ninth year of teaching and I've had experiences in teaching Pre-AP science classes, integrated arts science classes, Earth Sciences, Biology, Astronomy and Meteorology.
