Second Grade

Meet our 2nd grade teachers!

Mrs. Chastain

Greetings!  My name is Kelli Chastain and this is my 36th year to teach and my 5th year to teach at BRE.  My husband Brian and I moved from Oklahoma to Colorado to continue our educational careers.  I received my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from the University of Oklahoma and my Masters in Early Childhood Education from the University of Central Oklahoma.  Both of our children were married this past spring within a month of each other.  Our son, Carson and his wife Maddie (in the blue dress) now live in Oak Creek where he is a ranch hand and she is a 4th grade teacher in Yampa.  Our daughter, Cierra (the bride) is a nurse at Vanderbilt Hospital on the burn unit and her husband Sean works for a medical company in Nashville, TN.  Our faith, family and friends are the heartbeat of who we are each day.  I love to cook, clean, go on hikes, paddleboard, spend time with our little dog, Rocky and attend Life Church South Denver.  This year is going to be another great year to be remembered.  We are always better together and BRE Strong!

Mrs. Ingle

Hi there!  My name is Kelsey Ingle.  My family and two dogs just moved from Ohio where I was teaching at an independent private school.  I have taught Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 5th grade students.  Most recently I was placed in a 1st grade classroom.  I love the great outdoors, sweet moments with my family, crocheting while listening to podcasts or audiobooks, and walks with my St. Bernard and Golden Retriever.  I am SO excited to become part of the BRE HERD! 


Mrs. Lindfors

My name is Taryn Lindfors.  I am so excited to be joining the 2nd grade team at Buffalo Ridge!  I have my degree from CU Boulder - Go Buffs!  I taught English Language Learners for several years and was a substitute teacher for grades K-8 throughout DCSD.  I strive to encourage students curiosity and love for learning in all we do.
My husband and I have been married for 10 years.  We have 2 children - who attend BRE!  As a family we enjoy getting out in the Colorado outdoors!  We love camping and hiking as well as visiting our family that live in warmer climates during the winter. 
I am looking forward to a wonderful year being a part of the HERD!
