As principal, I could not be more proud of the dynamic, passionate staff that teach every day. The teachers at Park are skilled at meeting student needs through emotional and academic strategies. The DNA of the school is the strong focus on culture and expectations and as we begin to make changes for next year, this always remains in the forefront of my mind. Every year we have a few changes, and this year is no different. Listed below are the changes for the 2019-2020 school year.
Marci Fredrick will be teaching 6th grade ELA at Escalante. Shea Walker will be taking over the GT position for grades 3-5, while Jamie Driscoll will provide services for K-2 students who need enrichment.
Kathleen Holley will be moving from fourth grade homeroom teacher to a math interventionist position. Sarah Culhane will move from 5th grade to 4th grade and Taylor Henzler will move from 4th grade to the art position. Charlie Burns will move from second grade to 5th grade, and we will be hiring a new fourth grade teacher.
We will miss Mrs. Deb Jackson and wish her the best! She will be teaching PreK-8th Grade Visual Arts at Denver Green School in the city of Denver. It is an innovation School at DPS (Denver Public Schools). "I will miss my Park family very much. I have felt so loved and supported by all of the Park staff and Community. The Art Department is in good hands with Taylor!"
Hannah Hendry will be teaching kindergarten replacing Suzanne Cash and we are in the process of hiring Sherra Bornheim’s replacement. Lastly, James Burke will be replaced by Courtney Ham in the ESS department.
Thank you for letting us teach your children. It is a great privilege and honor and we are grateful for your support. May your summer be filled with popsicles, star filled nights and reading!
