7/8 Science

Saul Falcon
7th Grade Science

Hello! My name is Saul Falcon and I am currently in my 5th year of teaching science at Arvada K-8.  I was born in Mexico but moved to the US at a young age and grew up in Arvada.  I attended college at Regis University where I studied Biochemistry and French before pursuing my teacher licensure through the University of Colorado- Denver.  

Apart from being a busy science teacher, I am grateful for my amazing family!  I enjoy going on new adventures and  spending time outdoors with my wife, two kids, and dogs.  We enjoy being active by walking, riding bikes, playing sports, and hiking.

My favorite part of being an educator is learning.  There is always more to learn and it is an incredible feeling to see my student’s grow and improve their skills and knowledge!

Chris Filson
8th Grade Science

Hello! My name is Chris Filson and I am one of the middle school science teachers here. I was born and raised in Houston, TX, but got to Colorado as soon as I could, moving here in 2007. I received my bachelor's degree from Kenyon College in Ohio where I studied History, Political Science, and Astronomy. I received my master's degree from MSU Denver in elementary education. Until I came to Arvada K8, I had always taught elementary students including 3rd, 5th, and 6th grades, but I love teaching middle school science.

When I am not teaching, I love spending time with my wife and young son and marveling at all the things he is learning. I enjoy all types of games, from board games, to video games, to pen and paper roll playing games. I enjoy sharing my passion for games by running after school board game and Dungeons & Dragons clubs. Other things I enjoy are household projects, frisbee golf at Memorial Park, and skiing.

I love being at Arvada K8 because this my community. I have lived in Arvada since 2014. My wife and I recently bought our first home just up the street from the school because we love Arvada so much. I feel very lucky to be part of this community both as an educator and a resident.
