About Me

Hello, families!!


My name is Natalie Kapchinske and I am so excited to start my first year at PRA! I am originally from the “corn fields” of Kankakee, IL and I moved to Colorado thirteen years ago.  While living in the mountains, I was a lead preschool teacher in Breckenridge, CO for eight years, primarily caring for one and two year old kiddos.


In 2013 I made the move to Denver to pursue higher education, enrolling in the Student Teacher Residency Program at CU Denver.  I hold a BA in Psychology and have a MA in Curriculum and Instruction. I was a kindergarten teacher for two years, within the Denver Public Schools.


In my free time, I love to hike, camp, mountain bike, cook, and I love seeing live music...to name a few.


I am so thrilled to finally find a school that encompasses the same passion and energy I have for teaching! This is going to be a fantastic year.
