Elementary Art

Ms. Seiter

Hello there! My name is Mrs. Seiter, Vanguard Classical School East’s K-5 Art teacher. I have lived in Denver for the last seven years but I am originally from St. Louis, Missouri. There I earned my degree in Fine Arts as well as my K-12 Art Teaching License. I am a lover of the arts in all of the many forms that exist. When I am not at work I enjoy a good adventure outdoors, especially with my dog.

Elementary Music

Mr. Gilley

My name is Mr. Gilley. I'm a music educator and musician hailing from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. While in Louisiana I worked with an organization called Kids' Orchestra who brought music programs to schools that lacked their own. Now that I'm at Vanguard East, I'm excited to bring the same fun and passion for music to my students here as well!
