Welcome to Superior Elementary
Dear Superior Students and Families,
It is with great excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the new Principal of Superior Elementary School. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with such amazing students, an extremely dedicated staff, and a supportive school community. I feel very fortunate to be part of this school and to support the students and families. I have been hard at work this summer learning about Superior to make for a return to school that will be like no other. We are all coming out of the pandemic with different experiences and feelings and we will work together to reconnect as a school community and face the next steps, together.
I have been dedicated to the field of education for more than twenty years. I have worked with students ranging in age from Kindergarten through 8th grade in a variety of roles. I have been a classroom teacher, a K-5 specialist teacher in the area of technology integration, an Educational Technology Specialist, as well as an Assistant Principal at Eldorado PK-8. Most recently, I served as the Director of Instructional Practices in the Southwest Network here in BVSD. I am thrilled to bring my skills as an educational leader to Superior Elementary School and to work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child is successful academically and truly known as a member of our school community.
On a personal note, my husband and I are both native to Colorado. Our oldest son, Hayden, is going into 4th grade this fall at Superior while our younger son, Grant, will be starting kindergarten at Superior. We are a family that celebrates neurodiversity as we are navigating raising a child with autism. We value and support an inclusive world where we see people for their strengths. Sometimes, we have to tackle life a little differently. We ask that you meet us with grace and patience if we are struggling in public places or events. Autism can be tricky. Like most parents, we are learning everyday how to be the best parents we can be for both our boys.
I view education as a life-long process and expect that I will continue to learn about the uniqueness of Superior this year and in the years to come. Most importantly, I bring a belief that students are at the center of all school-related decisions. I am excited to unite my experience, my openness to learn, my child-centered approach and my belief that ALL students have a place at Superior. Now more than ever, the relationships between families and the school are vital to the success of our students. I look forward to meeting all of you as we return to school.
