Mrs. Rebecca Kuenn

Hello, my name is Mrs. Kuenn and I am very excited to be back in my fifth year at Skyview Middle School as a part of the Special Education team.  This is my seventh year serving as a Special Education Teacher.  I am a proud graduate of the University of Michigan Business School and the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs (UCCS) School of Education. Prior to my career as a Special Education teacher,  I worked for over 25 years in the financial services industry including a bank, a credit union, a mortgage company, and a mutual fund company here in Colorado Springs.  From 1989-1991, I served as a Christian missionary on a ship called The Anastasis in the Domican Republic, Europe, and West Africa with an organization called Youth With A Mission.  Finally, I found my way to my true vocation working with middle school students, with all their energy and challenges.   

I am passionate about helping students to develop a vision for their future and encouraging them to persist through the challenges, both academic and personal, that they will undoubtedly encounter as they seek to work towards their dream.  In the craziness that middle school can be, I enjoy cheering (and yes, often nagging and reminding) my students on to success.  Currently, the focus of my classroom instruction is designed to guide students to develop their mathematical reasoning and skills.  After school tutoring at Skyview M.S., called Homework Help, is aonther avenue where I get to know our students better.

Outside of school, I enjoy teaching pre-schoolers and infants to swim at the Garden Ranch Branch of the YMCA, boating, kayaking, and most any activity in, on, or under water.  Traveling in any form, either on a luxurious cruise ship or cross country road trips in my mini van is always the highlight of my summer.
