There are many types of heroes who spend their improving the lives of others through difficult positions including military, firefighters/EMS, law enforcement, healthcare professionals, and teachers. Whether our brave neighbors wear uniforms or scrubs, lanyards or badges, we are grateful for their service.

We are thrilled to have the platform to celebrate incredible members of our community through this series: Heroes in the Community, where we will take an opportunity to honor the heroes in our local Falcon and Colorado Springs area. We hope to share local events, holidays, fundraising opportunities, charitable organizations, honorary people, and so much more with you, so keep in tune for what is to come!
Celebrating Our Teachers
As the heat of August beats upon us, the kids throughout Eastern Colorado Springs, Falcon, Black Forest, and Peyton are all heading back to school. We are proud to shine this month’s spotlight on heroes that protect and shape the minds of our community’s children: teachers. We are incredibly grateful to all of the teachers that dedicate their time and efforts to teaching, mentoring, and supporting the youth of El Paso county in order to shape the minds that will one day shape our future.
At The Reichert Mortgage Team, we would like to sincerely thank the remarkable teachers throughout El Paso County which includes over 200 schools. We are very appreciative of the time teachers put into caring for all of the students in the classroom, during extracurricular activities, and at home working through their assignments and creating lessons. Teachers have incredible hearts and are passionate about learning, which is something Reichert values and truly appreciates.
Homes for Heroes® for Teachers
As a veteran, there is nothing I love more than serving my community, and I am honored to be surrounded by incredible heroes such as teachers that spend each day serving others by shaping the minds and work ethics of students everywhere. One of the ways I am proud to serve the areas of Colorado Springs and Falcon is through the Homes for Heroes® program. We are an official Homes for Heroes® Affiliate as a mortgage lender, and we want to ensure that all of the incredible teachers ranging from Security to Monument and every neighborhood in-between are educated about the mortgage benefits they can receive. We want to take this opportunity to thank teachers for educating the young minds in our beautiful community by providing excellent home buying options.
How To Celebrate Our Teachers
Colorado Springs teachers directly give back to our community each and every day. Fortunately, there are many ways that we can show our gratitude and help create a better environment for their students. Here are just a few different ways to get involved and give back to our teachers as well as their students in Southern Colorado.
5 Creative Ways to Help Local Teachers

Charities and Non-Profits
Donors Choose: A Fundraising platform for educators who need help funding their classrooms. You can filter the search results to find Colorado school classrooms that need donations for supplies, field trips, and general needs.
Adopt A Classroom: This online fundraising platform was created out of the need to provide every student with equal opportunity to succeed in class with the supplies they need. Often, families who cannot afford school supplies are left to hope that teachers can pay out of pocket to provide for the students. Adopt A Classroom helps close that gap.
