Meet the Teachers

Hello My Name Is...

Mrs. Brunell


Hi! I am so pleased to be teaching first grade again at Clear Sky! Each year, I love to build positive relationships with the children in my class and help them enjoy learning. I want them to feel treasured (because they are). So many exciting opportunities for growth take place in first grade!  

My husband, Matt, and I have a son (David), daughter (Jessica), and son-in-law (Michael). We will become grandparents this year!! We enjoy getting outdoors to hike or play pickle ball. We also love playing games and traveling together. 

My absolute favorite hobby is reading. It is such a pleasure to teach young learners and to encourage their love for reading, as well! I am sincerely looking forward to working with your families this year.

Hello! My name is Crystal Dixon and I am so excited to be teaching your child this year. This is my first year teaching and I am thrilled to join the Clear Sky family.  We will have a wonderful year together full of learning, growth, and most of all…fun! 

My husband, Shane, and I have two daughters, Claire (11) and Marissa (9). Claire is going into 6th grade and Marissa is going into 4th grade. They will both be attending Clear Sky.  We also have two dogs, Daisy and Benny, who are my fur babies!  

I absolutely love to be in the mountains and try to go as often as I can. As a family, we try to go on a new hike every Sunday (and get ice cream afterwards, of course). I also love to ski and enjoy doing anything outdoors.

Hello! My name is Chelsea. I am so excited to be teaching your child this year at Clear Sky Elementary. I absolutely love teaching and watching your children grow! My passion for teaching has grown so strong over the years and I cannot wait to be a part of your child’s life.

I have an amazing boyfriend Ryan, and no kids but a sweet cat named Minky. I love spending time with my family and going to sporting events.  I love to color, do puzzles and take a dance class at my gym. 

I am a Colorado Native and currently live in Denver. I grew up in the Castle Rock area and graduated from Rock Canyon High school! This will be my 7th year teaching.  I look forward to the family we create here at school! Thank you for sharing your sweet children with me!

Mrs. Schafer

Hi! I am so excited to be joining the Clear Sky family this year.  This will be my 6th year teaching first grade and my thirteenth year teaching overall.  I truly enjoy teaching our youngest students and cultivating a love for learning that will hopefully last a lifetime.

My husband Mark and I moved to Castle Rock last year with our two children.  Our daughter, Elliott, is four years old and our son, Graham, is two years old. We moved from Kansas City and yes, we are Chiefs fans.  I hope that’s not a deal breaker.
I’m looking forward to all the memories we will make this year as a classroom community!
