My name is Kurstin Gardipe. I started working in Early Childhood Education Centers right out of high school, in 2006, while attending Red Rocks community college and going to dental assisting school. I continued working in different Centers until 2013. In 2013, I started working with Denver Public Schools at Edision Elementary. I have continued working with DPS over the years in many different positions and with all ages from 2-18. I have 2 daughters that are 7 and 11 years old. We enjoy going to all kinds of restaurants, theme/water parks, museums, going to see movies and traveling. I also enjoy meeting new people and learning new things. I am very excited to be starting here at Columbian this year as the library para and getting to meet and spend time with all your wonderful, amazing kids.
