Principal's Message

Principal's Message Image
I am so proud to be serving the Harrison School students, family and community as the principal!  A little about me:  I was a high school English teacher for four years in Brighton School District 27J, then I moved to Pueblo and became an elementary school counselor for a few years. My job transitioned and I became an administrator at a K-8 school, first as an Academic Support Specialist, then an Assistant Principal, and finally a Principal.  After 11 years as a Principal, I moved into Human Resources, where I supported the implementation of Senate Bill 10-191 (Educator Effectiveness) in the district.  Another K-8 school needed the support of a principal, so I left my job in Human Resources, and became the principal of a Turnaround School for almost three years.  However, when the opportunity to come to Harrison School was presented, I could not it pass up, and I couldn't be happier!
 
I would like to thank the staff, students, and community for being so welcoming to me.  My husband and I live in Pueblo West.  We have five children all together:  Dylan (26), Jesse (24), Alex (22), Mariah (19), and Julia (17).  We have three dogs:  Miles, Maxie, and Yuma and a new kitten Phoebe.   We spend most of our spare time with our children and their activities, but we look forward to spending time camping very soon.

Harrison Mural

The last 4 weeks have consisted of a whirlwind of brainstorming, planning, sketching, begging for permission, funding, ordering and picking up supplies, priming, painting, tons of teamwork and monitoring young artists, and finally - this week - the installation of our most wonderful "Harrison K-8 School Spirit" mural project. Thank you all for your positive support for this HUGE undertaking. I'm very pleased with the results and proud of the 200+ students who took part in its creation. I will be presenting the attached slideshow to our 8th grade families this evening at the continuation ceremony. If you can't make it, please enjoy viewing at your convenience.
