Hi, I’m Chrissy Miller!

I was born in Los Gatos, California. When I was four, our family moved to Falcon, Colorado, I lived there until I turned 18. I met my husband Pete at truck driving school in Des Moines, Iowa. We drove over the road for a bit while residing in Salina, Kansas. It was a ton of fun, and I have been in all but four states!

We moved to Cañon City in October of 1994. We have two beautiful daughters together; Nacole is 21 and Kaylan is 19. Nacole lives in Austin, Texas where she attends Concordia University. She will graduate in December with a Bachelor’s Degree in Media Communications. Kaylan lives in White Salmon, Washington, doing what she loves: kayaking and working in a quaint little coffee cafe’. I also have two step sons, Robert and Charles, who both live in Colorado.

I have worked for Cañon City schools for over 13 years. I absolutely love this district and the people in it. I worked as a Special Ed Para at CCHS and Harrison. When the new Harrison School K-8 building opened, I was the receptionist and the attendance clerk for two years. I have served in my current position as the Harrison Secretary for the past 9 ½ years. In the Fall, I will start my 4th year coaching volleyball at CCHS, another passion of mine. Again, I love the people I work with and the great friendships that have been made over the years. Harrison and the people in it hold a special place in my heart.

Besides spending time with my wonderful family, I love going to Lake Havasu City, Arizona, to visit my mom and her husband. I also love to play in Cripple Creek and Las Vegas! One day I hope to vacation in Tahiti!

Principal's Message

Principal's Message Image
I am so proud to be serving the Harrison School students, family and community as the new 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 (25), Jesse (23), Alex (20), Mariah (17), and Julia (15).  We have three dogs:  Miles, Maxie, and Yuma.   We spend most of our spare time with our children and their activities, but we look forward to spending time camping very soon.
