Welcome back to the 2018-2019 school year! Let me be the first to share with you how excited all of us are to begin a new year full of rigorous instruction, engaged students, and joyful learning. Your children are in excellent hands and we are so fortunate to have such a strong, dedicated school community here. This is my 13th year in education and I have been fortunate to be a coach, literacy tutor, teacher, and administrator in Pre-K-6th grade. I know first hand that the developmental needs of our K-4 students are quite different. Yet we are one school community and are committed to differentiating and integrating the learning we do to serve all of our students and parents equally. Thank you for your support and cooperation in helping make our school such a successful, collaborative place where our children are always striving to achieve.
Principal Background: Jennifer Palacios
I am originally from Colorado, but spent many of my elementary years in Casper Wyoming. We moved back to Colorado when I was in middle school and I finished out my educational career there. I have a Bachelor of Science from Colorado State University Pueblo, a Masters in Elementary Education from University of Phoenix and a Masters in Education Leadership and Innovation from Regis University. I am married, have two handsome sons and two dogs. I love to cook, bake, hike, kayak, play in the water, read and watch movies.
I have been honored to work in the educational field since finishing college. I started my career as a literacy tutor in a Title 1 school in Colorado, then taught Kindergarten-Second grade for the remainder of my classroom teaching years. During the 2015-2016 school year I served as the Assistant Principal at Pilot Butte Elementary and Eastside Elementary. I started my journey as the Principal of Stagecoach for the 2016-2017 school year. Please follow Stagecoach happenings on our Stagecoach Facebook and on twitter @Stagecoach307.
