My name is Lisa Eklund and I am a teacher in the second grade. I grew up in Aurora and graduated from Colorado Christian University with a degree in Psychology. I was first introduced to Vanguard as a parent when I would volunteer in my daughter’s kindergarten class. A few years later I worked as an Educational Assistant in second grade. Then, after completing my teacher licensure, I had the amazing privilege of teaching my own second grade classroom! I have two children that will be in the 5th and 3rd grade this year. My husband is a graphic artist and designer and we love spending time together as a family. My hobbies include crafting, enjoying the Colorado outdoors and decorating. I’m very excited about teaching and helping your children grow!Email
Hi! My name is Cassandra Rodriguez. I am a 2nd grade teacher here at Vanguard Classical. This is my 9th year teaching, and my third year at Vanguard. I am from California, but I moved to Texas to attend the University of Texas and received my Bachelor of Arts in Education. After I moved to Colorado, I went on to achieve my Masters in Educational Technology! I have many interests in and out of education. I love bringing my love of reading to my students. I also enjoy sewing and tinkering with technology. Most of my spare time is spent drinking coffee and playing with my two children!Email

My name is Rachel Minero. I am an Educational Assistant in 2nd grade. I will be starting my fourth year at Vanguard. My 10-year-old daughter has attended Vanguard since kindergarten. I am originally from California, but have lived in Colorado for 20+ years. I find it peaceful sitting out on rainy days and I enjoy playing outside with my daughter and adorable dog. I love teaching young children; they are filled with wonder and joy. I am currently seeking my degree in Early Childhood Education and am CPA certified. In the very little free time I have I spend it in the ocean for I am secretly a mermaid. I have a collection of thing-a-ma-bobs and one day wish to have a pet zebra.
