Welcome to Penrose!
Hello! My name is Tamara Forrest and it has been a great honor to serve as the Principal of Penrose Elementary since 2015. In my time here, the Penrose staff has led and maintained the Project Based Learning approach to instruction!
I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Special Education from Southwest Missouri State University in 2002 and my Master’s Degree in Educational Administration from the University of Arkansas in 2004.
I started my career as a special education teacher in middle and elementary schools for the first 5 years. I began working for Colorado Springs School District 11 in 2006 as a Literacy Resource Teacher at Bates Elementary. In 2010, I began my work in administration as an Assistant Principal at Martinez Elementary. In 2013, I became the Assistant Principal at Scott Elementary. In 2015, I found my Principal home at Penrose.
