Welcome from Principal Collier

Greetings Discovery Magnet School Community,

I'm so excited to be the principal of 27J's newest school and it's first k-8 magnet school. 

I want to tell you a little about myself, both professionally and personally.

Professional Background
My passion has always been to provide students with opportunities to learn in a variety of ways. I am also dedicated to teaching skills which allows students to grow in their personal values to become better citizens. I have been in education for almost 30 years. Although I have been a leader at elementary and middle school, most of my experiences have been in K-8 schools with a community of students who are connected to the school. 

BA - Behavioral Science from Metropolitan State University

MA - Early Literacy from CU Denver

MA - Multicultural Education from Regis University

Ed.D - Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis on Gifted Education from DU

Personal Background
I am an Air Force wife. I have been married for more than 25 years to an extremely patient and understanding husband who has been by my side developing the vision of this school. Our oldest son attends West Point Military Academy and he will graduate and be commissioned as an officer in the US Army in May 2024. Our younger son currently attends Northglenn High School. He is a part of the P TECH program where he also attends Front Range Community College.
