Hello, my name is Stephanie Chavira and I will be the Intructional Coach at Skyview and Stellar this year. I have been in Education for over 20 years and hope to bring some of my knowledge and expertise to both buildings. I started off my career in Denver Public Schools teaching Early Childhood which I taught for 2 years, and then moved into Kindergarten which I taught for another 10 years. I took a couple of years off to have my twin girls, who are now 14 and will be going to Mountain Range this school year.
I came back into education as a Lead Mentor for 1st year teachers, and then moved into a program that developed new teachers called Denver Teacher Residency. This program allowed students who already held a degree to get their masters in Education while working in a DPS school for the entire year. They were guided and taught through their Mentor Teacher and the DTR Staff. I was a site coordinator for 4 years and a field coordinator for 3 years. The reason I left DPS was I had very little time for my family and lived in Erie and wanted a better work/life balance. Adams 12 has given that to me and I am very excited to work with all of you this year, however that may look.
