Skye Dertien

Hello families! My name is Skye Dertien, but you might see Charlotte, you can call me Skye. I am excited to be in Kindergarten this year at IVES. I was previously a substitute teacher last year and took on a 4th grade class in January during the 2021-2022 school year. I graduated with my Bachelors Degree from Western State Colorado University in Gunnison. 
I believe that every classroom should be a safe space and that we are all friends and one big family. I focus on making sure that every voice is heard and everyone feels included in their day. I have a huge passion for working with younger kids and getting them excited for being in school and having them come in ready to learn and grow daily. 
I am a Colorado native, I grew up east of Colorado Springs in Calhan. I live there with my family now. I grew up on a farm with pigs and chickens and showing in 4-h, as well as playing a variety of sports. I love watching Chargers football every Sunday with my dad during football season. I am a big Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Marvel and Star Wars fan! In my free time I watch any of those movies, read, or am doing something with my family. 
I look forward to working with you and getting to be with your students during the school year. If you have any questions or concerns you can email me at
