Hello, I am Tia Vahling. I am a Colorado Native and a product of Adams 12! I grew up locally and didn't travel far to raise my own family. I graduated from University of Colorado Denver and went on to receive my Masters Degree in Elementary Education.. I began my teaching career at Prairie Hills Elementary in 2009. Most of my time spent teaching has been at Prairie Hills in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade. It is my passion to create and foster life long learners by educating the whole child. Not only do I get to teach at this wonderful school, but I've also enjoyed previous roles of a proud Meadowlark parent and involved community member. I love Prairie Hills and I am honored to spend each day here supporting our amazing student body and staff.
On a personal note... I enjoy hanging out with my two daughters in my free time and our 2 four-legged friends. Our newest addition, Millie the Bassest hound, keeps me very busy! When I'm not at school you can most likely find me drinking Starbucks, cheering on the Rockies, reading the latest book release, cooking, walking our dogs and/or hiking around our beautiful state.
