It has been our intention to return to some form of in-person learning as soon as it was determined by our health departments that it is both safer and feasible to do so. On September 21, during our virtual town hall with county health department officials, we reviewed the current coronavirus data for our community. To this end, our county health agency partners have made the recommendation that it is now appropriate for us to return to a hybrid learning model. Click here to watch the virtual town hall discussion about the data guiding our decisions and current levels in our community. Beginning Monday, October 5, we will be implementing a hybrid in-person learning schedule for all students who are not currently enrolled in the LaunchED program. LaunchED student’s schedules will not be impacted by this change.
Cómo usted sabe, nuestra intención ha sido volver a alguna forma de aprendizaje en persona tan pronto cómo nuestros departamentos de salud determinen que es más seguro y factible hacerlo. Anoche, durante nuestra junta virtual con los funcionarios del departamento de salud del condado, revisamos los datos actuales del coronavirus para nuestra comunidad. Con esto, nuestros asociados de las agencias de salud pública del condado han recomendado que ahora es apropiado que regresemos a un modelo de aprendizaje híbrido. Haga clic aquí para ver la discusión de la junta virtual sobre los datos que guían nuestras decisiones y los niveles actuales en nuestra comunidad. Comenzando el lunes 5 de octubre, estaremos implementando un programa de aprendizaje híbrido en persona para todos los estudiantes que no estén inscritos actualmente en el programa LaunchED. Los horarios de estudiantes LaunchED no serán impactados por este cambio.
I grew up north of Longmont, in Johnstown. After receiving my Bachelor's degree in Home Economics Education in 1985 from Colorado State University, I was hired to teach at Milliken Middle School, where I stayed for ten years. After that, I taught at Loveland High School and Weld Opportunity School in Greeley. I then returned to Roosevelt High School in Johnstown, where I taught Family and Consumer Science courses for six years and then began working on my Master's in Educational Leadership at the University of Northern Colorado.
During this time, I transitioned into a Dean and District Assessment Coordinator for the Johnstown-Milliken school district. I was hired as Principal of Weld Opportunity High School in Greeley for three years, from 2006-2009, until a reduction in students forced us to close. That led me to St. Vrain Valley, where I was hired as the Principal for Olde Columbine High School and the Career Development Center.
I also serve as the Career and Technical Education Director for the district, which means I manage and oversee all of the Business, FACS, Stage Technology and Informational Technology programs, as well as what we have at CDC. I truly enjoy my job and am excited to get another year going!
