Kaitlin Carrick

6th Grade Crew Teacher

Meet Ms. Kaitlin!

My name is Kaitlin Carrick and I could not be more excited to join the crew here at Renaissance.


A little about me- I grew up in a small town on the Eastern Plains of Colorado.  I had many pets- some ordinary, some less so, and many siblings. Math was big in my household- with a mother who was a math teacher and a father who was an engineer, and two older siblings who both secured careers in math. Naturally, I then pursued History. I earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley and then set out to teach, which I have been doing for the past ten years. 


Along the way, I continued to expand my education- earning a Master’s Degree in Education, specific to supervision and administration, and spending time coaching. I have coached volleyball, basketball, and track! I also got married and had three beautiful fur children- and one sketchy one that hangs out on the porch. 


Outside of school, I spend as much time with my family as I can. I enjoy building furniture, listening to pop music, and reading. I also like to go on fun adventures to places like: France, Italy, China, and Kansas. 


Through all the years though, my belief in quality education has never wavered. Education is and always will be the great equalizer in life. Each year, I try to foster a love of learning in each of my students and to live the example of being a lifelong learner. 


I can’t wait to get started and I look forward to meeting all of you.
