The 2021-2022 school year marks my 29th year in education. John C. Maxwell said, “Students don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.” I subscribe to this claim completely. Further, I believe and fully support the vision and mission of SkyView. I serve the community alongside some of the most amazing educators in the field. I am humbled by the opportunity to lead the SkyView community in the role of Head of Schools. My educational journey led me to SkyView in 2012. I graduated from Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo in 1992 with a degree in English. I continued my education at Bethany College in Scotts Valley, California in 1994 where I completed graduate school for Educator Licensing in Leadership and Teaching and Curriculum and Instruction. I believe to my core we are educating the future to change the world. As educators, I believe we are called to meet students where they are and develop them holistically. To that end, I am committed to ensuring we prioritize the academic, emotional, social, physical, and mental development of the students in our charge.

Biography

I am so fortunate to be part of the leadership team at SkyView Academy and honored to work alongside an amazing team of educators. My journey of working in education has not been traditional, but education has always been at the core of all that I have done. I was born in Puerto Rico and moved to Orlando, Florida in the middle of 7th grade. My Puerto Rican heritage has provided me with a love of family, music, food, language, and culture. After earning my undergraduate degree from Florida State University, I had the great opportunity to teach in a small school in Panajachel, Guatemala. My experiences in Central America inspired me to pursue graduate studies in Psychology. My internship brought our family out to Denver where I had the privilege to work at Children’s Hospital Colorado. I worked for nearly ten years in a neurological rehabilitation setting helping infants, children and teenagers recover from brain and spinal cord injuries.  In my pursuit to return to education, I landed a dream job here at SkyView Academy teaching Spanish and Leadership in the Fall of 2014. SVA’s vision to prepare students to be lifelong learners and honorable leaders exemplifies what I value in education for my own children, who both attend and will graduate from SkyView Academy. Sebastian will be graduating this year and Siena is a sophomore. It’s incredible how time has flown! My lovely wife of 19 years works at Craig Hospital and we love our pet-filled home in Roxborough, Colorado. Most weekends we enjoy our gardens and being outdoors. I am so excited about this school year and humbled to be in my new role as Upper School Principal.

I am so honored to be a member of SkyView Academy’s Leadership Team. It means the world to me to work alongside a team that values student success and well being as much as I do. I earned both my bachelor’s and master's degrees from Northern Illinois University. After working in the Boston area in both the school setting and private practice for 10 years, the birth of our daughter brought us to the Denver area to be near family. SkyView welcomed me in 2011 as the K-12 speech and language pathologist. It has been an amazing experience to be a part of the growth and development of the Student Support Services team over the past 10 years. All students present with a unique combination of gifts and challenges. I am passionate about making learning accessible to all students and am grateful to have the opportunity to facilitate student development and confidence. Building and maintaining relationships with students, staff and families is super important to me. I will continue to work with students, schoolwide, as a speech language pathologist in addition to serving as the Student Support Services Director.

 

When I'm not working, I'm doing my best to keep up with my ten year old daughter. She has a big, spunky personality and rarely stops moving : ) You can usually find me at a sporting event or driving to and from practices with our dog as my co-pilot. I also enjoy cooking, baking, traveling, hiking and reading.

 

I am committed to this school, our students and our incredible staff. I'm so excited for a new school year!
