Principal's Message

I have been in Cañon City for over twenty years and graduated from Cañon City High School. I have been in education for the past eight years and have worked with all levels of students. The majority of my teaching career was focused on middle school social studies. I love the challenges that a career in education brings and cherish the moments when students experience the joy of learning something new. Being the principal at Cañon Exploratory School is my dream job because I truly believe in the culture and exploratory model that we share with our students each day.

Learning is a life long journey that we all take part in. I believe that, as educators, we are given the opportunity to help our students discover a love for learning. The skills, concepts, and philosophies that are obtained throughout the learning process help shape who we are as individuals. By providing our students with relevant learning opportunities that are connected to real-world applications we are able to help prepare them for success in twenty-first century careers. At Cañon Exploratory School we believe together we make a difference for ourselves, our families, and our world. We look forward to partnering with students, families, and community members to help everyone be the best explorer they can be.


Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore.
