about 1 year ago

Sonya has over two decades' experience in public education, speaks Spanish, holds a Masters degree in Educational Leadership, an American Montessori Society credential in Montessori Leadership, and is licensed to be both teacher and administrator in Colorado.  She is a member of the Strategic Leadership Team. Sonya loves her family, photography, travel, reading, and playing tennis. She is often at school and can sometimes even be seen driving the school bus to get children to and from field trips. Her favorite Montessori quote is "the greatest sign of success for a teacher is to be able to say 'the children are working as if I do not exist." She started a doctoral program in Charter School Leadership in June of 2018 and is frequently found reading and writing papers towards this goal.
