Teacher Spotlight - Heidi Todd
Hello RMAE Community,

I’m Heidi Todd and I will be your new Spanish Teacher for grades K to 7.  I am a Coloradoan. I grew up and graduated from Montrose on the Western Slope. After living a few different places, I landed on the Front Range of Colorado in 2004. I reside in the Highlands of Denver with my 2 sons, Sebastian (13) and Oscar (9). They keep me busy with their lacrosse and karate. I keep busy with exercise, skiing and spending time with friends.

RMAE created an excitement to return to the classroom after 8 years away. This year will definitely be a learning year. Learning about the school, the students, creating a solid curriculum and most importantly building relationships. It will take time, I look forward to your support and patience as I navigate this year. I want this year to be a stepping stone of success for each additional year.  I can’t wait to meet everyone and have volunteers in the classroom.

Heidi Todd

Hello RMAE families! My name is Darby May. I graduated from RMAE in 2014, EHS in 2017, and in December 2022 I graduated with a Social Studies Broadfield Secondary Education degree from Montana State University. I am in Evergreen until the end of the school year and would like to offer after-school tutoring for RMAE students in grades 3 through 8. 
I am able to tutor students in English (Literacy & Writing), Math, Social Studies, and Spanish either in one-on-one sessions or in a small group setting. Individualized learning plans and goal setting will be provided for each student. We will focus on applying the material to everyday scenarios and developing life-long effective study practices (that parents can help their students with, too!). Each tutoring session is 55 minutes long costing $45/one-on-one session, $35/student for two-student sessions, and $30/student for small groups of 3-4 students. 
As a student who has utilized tutoring, I know how empowering it is for kids to have personalized time with an advocate for their holistic success. If you are interested and/or have any questions, please contact me at (720)255-3470 or [email protected]. I look forward to working with you! Blessings, Darby May
