My Bio

Samantha Ackley is excited to start her third year as a 5th grade teacher at STEM. She believes that  education has the power to help everyone achieve their dreams. This led her to pursue a bachelor’s in Elementary Education at the University of Colorado Denver. She also earned an endorsement in Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Education.  Before joining the STEM team, Mrs. Ackley spent three and a half years working in Denver Public Schools.

In her free time, Mrs. Ackley enjoys reading, playing board games, watching movies, exploring Colorado, and relaxing at home with her husband and her pet bunny. She grew up right here in Highlands Ranch and loves teaching in her hometown.
