My name is Kirsten Bilderaya. This is my fourth year in Adams 12 and my first year at Tarver Elementary. I spent the last three years as an Early Childhood Specialist at the Early Childhood Education Center. Overall, this is my ninth year in preschool. Previous experience includes working in an integrated Deaf and Hard of Hearing preschool classroom and completing an internship at the Anchor Center for Blind Children, working with families in their homes. I am married to my wonderful husband and have two step children, whom I have raised for thirteen years. Our oldest is in her third year of college at CSU, and our youngest is a senior at Brighton High School. We also have a dog who has been a part of our family for 12 1⁄2 years. In my free time, I enjoy reading, gardening, working out at the gym, and exploring Colorado’s beautiful outdoors. I am very excited about joining the Tarver team!
