Ms. van Kleef

Ms. van Kleef is very excited to be teaching 7th and 8th grade mathematics this year at Aspen Ridge. She earned a BA in Accounting and a BA in International Studies at Colorado State University. She spent a few short years working as an auditor for a Big Four accounting firm before returning to university to follow her dream and pursue a career in education. She received her MA in German History from the University of Bayreuth in Germany and a second MA in European History from Rice University. She is currently working to complete her PhD from the University of Bonn in Germany. Her lifelong love for learning encompasses as well a deep curiousity and passion for the study of mathematics — for mathematics is a powerful tool to understand the world around us and to inspire new ways of thinking. Previously she taught middle school mathematics in Weld county. When not in the classroom, you can find her out on adventures and traveling with her Dutch husband, teaching and practicing yoga, reading in coffee shops, cycling or playing with her two orange cats.
