TOGETHER – Empowering, Inspiring, Learning for the FUTURE!

Dear Colorow Community,

 I am thrilled and honored to be joining the Colorow family.  I am excited for the work we will continue doing together on creating global, caring students through our new IB program.

A little bit about me professionally, I have been in education for 19 years. I started my journey in Jefferson County teaching reading, first grade, and second grade. I was also an instructional coach working with teachers and supporting all grades Kindergarten-6th grade. I then became an assistant principal for three years in Sheridan where my passion for reading and early literacy was deepened.  I was then fortunate to be hired into a strong network in Denver Public Schools as an assistant principal at a school very similar to Colorow.  We focused deeply on equity and ensuring all of our students have their needs met to be successful.

A little bit about me personally; I grew up in South Jefferson County and graduated from Chatfield High School. I attended Colorado State for my undergraduate and University of Colorado at Denver for my Master’s Degree and principal licensure.  I am married and have a son who is 10 months old. It’s true what people say, the time really does fly when you have a child!  My husband and I love watching movies and try to catch all the best picture Oscar nominees when they are announced. It was a little more of a challenge this past year, but we still managed to see seven of them before the Oscars.  I also enjoy reading, rollerblading, and yoga. 

Our children are the world’s more precious resource and I believe in fostering their growth both academically and supporting their well-being.  I know I couldn’t ask to be at a better school, because this is the belief of all of our staff at Colorow. I am so excited to be coming to Colorow, it feels like I am coming home. Jefferson County is the place that grew me as a learner, an educator, and a leader and I’m thrilled to be back. I look forward to meeting everyone and having a phenomenal 2020-2021 school year!

With excitement and gratitude,

Caryn Pratt
