Mrs. Ann-Alicia Grabenstein

Hello! My name is Ann-Alicia Grabenstein. This is my 4th year as a special eduation teacher at Meridian Ranch Elementary and my 17th year in education. I started my career as a general education teacher and have taught kindergarten, 2nd, 3rd and 4th grades. In 2020, I switched gears and became a special education teacher. I absolutely love helping my students reach their full potential! 

When not at school, I enjoy spending time with my family. My husband is a pipefitter and works all over the front range. My daughter is a second grader at MRES and I have two incredible step daughters that live in Denver.  We have four dogs and a bunny that keep us very busy. I enjoy crafting, gardening and hiking. 

I look forward to another fatastic school year, GO BULLDOGS!
