Welcome to my web page! My name is Denise Kirchhoff. I have taught at Central Lyon since 2011. I graduated from Luther College in 2007 and taught in Northeast Iowa before coming here. I have had experience teaching preschool - 2nd graders. In my free time, I enjoy camping, traveling, and reading.
I am very excited to be teaching preschool! I believe in the importance of teaching through structured play and providing many hands-on learning experiences in my classroom.
On this site you will find classroom updates, how to contact me, and weekly newsletters!
