I have been working at Sky View Academy since 2015 and am one of two occupational therapists who provide service to students in grades K-12. I love helping children be successful in their school environments. My husband and I have three children of our own (13, 16, 18) and enjoy spending time with our extended families.

I am originally from Kentucky and moved to Colorado in 2000. I have a MA in Industrial/Organizational Psychology. I worked as a consultant doing written and oral assessments and then for the Colorado Department of Transportation in Human Resources. I am married and have three girls that have attended Skyview. I have worked at Skyview as an Instructional Support Professional since 2016 and really enjoy getting to watch students learn and grow. Working with third graders and an amazing team brings me lots of joy! In my free time I teach a bible study and I love to garden, hike, camp, paddle board and ski in beautiful Colorado.

My name is Grace Maxwell and I am so excited for another year at SVA! After two years in the Dean role, I am transitioning to the classroom full-time and will continue teaching in 1st grade.
My husband, Adam, and I have four wonderful kiddos (9,6,5,1). We moved here from Illinois 8 years ago and haven't looked back! Colorado, and more specifically SVA, have become our home and I absolutely love being a part of this fantastic community. I am looking forward to another great year getting to know my students and their families!

After subbing for two years, I am excited to join the Kindergarten Team! I moved to Colorado in 2005 and worked at an outdoor education center until we moved to Highlands Ranch in 2012. On the weekends, you'll find my husband, 2 daughters (3rd grade and 6th grade), a large dog, and me camping, hiking, or doing other outdoor activities. We especially love ski season!

My wife and I are both Colorado natives, and our five daughters have exclusively attended SkyView, and as such, we have at least one student in each of the three schools. Needless to say, we have been a part of the SkyView family for over ten years and have a lot invested! We love to be involved at SkyView, and I also enjoy occasionally teaching Sunday School at our church and coaching my girls whenever possible.
I attended Metro State University and graduated with a B.S. in Computer Information Systems. Currently, I am the Director of Global Data and Digital Technology for Optiv, and am also a member of the off-ice officiating crew for the National Hockey League at Colorado Avalanche home games.
I strive to bring to this board position the same values SkyView is instilling into our students: character, service, and integrity, as well as a balanced view of what is best for our students, parents, and staff. My vision and goal for SkyView is to accept the baton from the current board, accelerate SkyView to the next level over the course of the next three years and continue to develop honorable leaders in this next generation.
My name is Ryan Meinkoth and I am the director of bands here at SVA. This year marks my 8th year of teaching and my 4th year at SkyView. I teach 6th grade band, 7th grade band, 8th grade band, middle school music appreciation, high school band, and work with extracurricular ensembles such as jazz band and pep band. I'm originally from St. Louis, MO, went to college at Mizzou, and taught in a small town in Missouri for four years before making the move to beautiful Colorado. In my free time I play ultimate frisbee, climb, and spend time with my wonderful girlfriend, Callie and our cute pup, Macy. Getting to work with kids and make music all day makes me the luckiest teacher at SVA and I love my job! We hope to see you at our next concert!
