Corey Kidder '15, DA Teaching Assistant

After graduating in 2015 from Denver Academy, we are thrilled to have Ms. Corey Kidder with us as a teaching assistant for the second and third grades. 

While attending DA, Ms. Kidder enjoyed the feeling of a close-knit community where she felt safe and knew that everyone was there for each other. 

“DA gave me the confidence I needed. I never thought I was smart until I first started at DA,” said Ms. Kidder. The teachers understood how I learned and they were able to teach to my learning style and set me up for success. I also learned how to advocate for myself and that was a very important skill I needed during college.” 

Ms. Kidder attended and graduated from the University of Northern Colorado with a degree in Special Education. Because of the positive experience she had while attending Denver Academy, she knew she wanted to work here. 

“The teachers [at DA] had such a large impact on my life, I wanted to do the same for my students!” She continued, “I love getting to work with kids every day and see their confidence start to grow and improve in their school work.”

We feel so lucky to have Ms. Kidder sharing her talents with us at DA.
