First Grade Teacher
Siegrist Elementary

Welcome to First Grade! My name is Lea Ditmars. I received my Elementary Education Degree from Northwest Missouri State University and my Master's Degree from Baker University.

I love reading, exercising, and cheering on the Chiefs!  I love chocolate peanut butter malts, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, diet Coke with lime and Chipotle burritos. I began my teaching career at Siegrist Elementary in 2004. I am originally from Iowa, but I enjoy living here in Platte City. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to help you educate your child. I know that our year will be fantastic, and I can’t wait to get started.
