Hi, I am Sarah Gasser. I have been working in the Fountain Fort Carson School District for 7 years. Prior to teaching preschool at Conrad, I taught Special Education at Jordahl Elementary School. My passion is working with students and families. I love to see a child’s excitement to learn new things! When I’m not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my husband and daughter, Ella. We love to do anything outdoors, including: hiking, snowboarding, running and swimming. We also travel to Michigan quite often to see our extended families. Although we are not native to Colorado, we love it here and have called this our home for the last 9 years!

This will be my 8th year teaching in District 8. I began my teaching career as a preschool teacher over thirty years ago. As a military spouse, I have had the pleasure teaching all over the world. I have been married almost 44 years and have 3 children and 4 grandchildren. All my children and grandchildren live here in Fountain. I have a BA in Early Childhood and a MA in Early Childhood Special Education. I remember playing "school" with my dolls at the age of 5, so I knew at an early age I wanted to teach. I have always taught preschool. It is amazing how much they grow and learn during their time at preschool and I love being able to experience it with them.

Hi! I am Crysta Nauert (Now-ert). This is my third year teaching but my first year in district 8. I am excited to be starting this new journey and adventure her at Conrad! I have my degree in Elementary Education and Special education and am currently working on my Masters in Early Childhood Special Education. I have always known I wanted to work with children but I truly found my passion when I had the opportunity to work in an inclusive preschool classroom. The students are so amazing and it is so much fun learning from them about the different ways to learn and teach! The students just want to learn and do their best! My husband and I have one little boy and four fur babies and in my spare time I try to spend as much time with family as possible!

I am new to Conrad Early Learning Center this year! My husband, two beautiful daughters and I are so excited to have just moved to Colorado Springs this summer. I am a military spouse with a degree in Elementary Education and will be pursuing my masters in Early Childhood Education. I discovered I had a passion for working with preschoolers several years ago, so I am thrilled to be here and back in the classroom. I truly enjoy watching children at this age and how their little minds work, soaking up every bit of information you can teach them. Preschool is the best!
