At STEM School Highlands Ranch we put innovation at the center of learning to unleash the potential of all students and prepare them for an exponentially changing world.

Before becoming a teacher, Kent worked in various biological fields, including zookeeping and animal behavior, natural resource management, and citizen science outreach/education.
