Ms. Renee Cockrell

Hello, Mitchell Community!

As a Colorado Springs native and a graduate of District 11 schools, I am so proud to be joining the Mitchell Leadership Team. I attended Colorado College for both my Bachelor of Arts in English and Master of Arts in Teaching the Humanities degrees. I am a National Board Certified Teacher and Colorado licensed principal, and I am also a doctoral student at Northeastern University. For nearly fifteen years, I have taught secondary English and interventions classes. It is my firm belief that every student can achieve at high levels with the proper supports and high expectations. My passion is working with teachers and students to fuel lifelong learning and discovery for all.  

At D11, we dare to empower the whole student to profoundly impact our world. Our shared work in the classrooms, art studios, theater, gymnasiums, and the community at large here at Mitchell High School is evidence of our living commitment to this vital mission. You are always welcome to contact me at renee.cockrell@d11.org.

Go, Marauders!

Mr. David Latino

It is with great humility and pride that I introduce myself to the Mitchell community as one of the assistant principals serving this historic Colorado Springs high school. I am a native Coloradan, who grew up in a family of educators, understanding from a young age the impact and importance of education. I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in History and Secondary Education from the University of Southern Colorado (Colorado State University-Pueblo) in 2001 with honors graduating magna cum laude and my Masters of Arts in Educational Leadership and Principal Licensure from Adams State University in 2006. With excitement, I enter my 21st year in the educational field. I have been privileged and honored to commit to the profession with my roles as an IB-Humanities and Social Studies teacher, cooperative learning and instructional coach, school assessment coordinator, head baseball coach and assistant football coach, chairing several school academic, behavioral systems, and community engagement committees, and being a mentor for the Sachs Foundation Elevated program. In addition, I will be bringing 7 years of high school administrative experience to the Mitchell leadership team. I believe in giving students opportunities to reach their maximum potential. I am committed to bringing forth my best personal effort for our Mitchell students to have the very best educational and extracurricular experiences by providing pathways to success. By being transparent and partnering with all of our stakeholders, I feel we can work together to provide the best for our current and future students and collectively achieve greatness. There are challenges that we will face, but by addressing them it will make us stronger, and will allow us to focus on being present, have constructive and productive conversations, and positively support our students’ educational goals and aspirations. Together we will be able to generate excellence and celebrate our successes. Thank you for the privilege to serve as your assistant principal. Together, We are Mitchell!
