As Executive Director, K-12 Schools, it’s great to be a part of the D11 team. I came from the business community 21 years ago to enter into the field of education. I earned my Bachelors Degree in History from the University of Denver and my Masters degree in Administration and Supervision from the University of Phoenix. I taught Social Studies, Language Arts, Math, Technology and Business to middle school students until I became an administrator and have served as an Elementary, Middle and High School Assistant Principal, as Middle School Principal, as Athletic /Activities Director at Middle and High School. I have served as Director of Curriculum and Instruction in two districts and was Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment in the Alamosa School District.
Welcome to Colorado Springs School District Eleven. I am very pleased to be a part of the K-12 Executive Director Team. We work together to support schools in creating an environment that stresses academic excellence and fosters respect for all. I have been an educator for 31 years and every year has been a professional growth opportunity for me to learn and serve others. I have had the great pleasure of serving as a building administrator at the middle school level and at the elementary level for 19 years prior to becoming a central office administrator. Eleven years of my career as an Elementary Principal include the honor of opening Trailblazer Elementary School. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Special Education and History from Western State College. I received my Masters Degree in Special Education with an emphasis in Reading from the University of Colorado. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family; I also enjoy reading, decorating, being outdoors, skiing and gardening. It is a pleasure and honor to be a part of the D-11 Administrative Team.
