I am very humbled and honored to introduce myself as your new principal at Lincoln School of Science & Technology. Joining Lincoln’s team of educators is perhaps the most exciting career change I have experienced. Together, we will work hard to honor the school’s namesake and provide a high-quality education for students that is focused on science and technology, while also respecting each student’s individual learning needs.
I arrive at Lincoln as an experienced Cañon City educator, with the 19/20 year marking my 15th year in education. I am also a husband and father. Both of my children will be joining me at Lincoln. My daughter will be in kindergarten and my son will be in second grade. My wife, a former educator and Lincoln student, looks forward to volunteering.
This year, we have several exciting changes to share. First, we have worked hard to find exceptional staff to replace those who have left us. We welcome the following educators to the Lincoln community:
Ms. Green - Kindergarten Mrs. Meagher - 4th Grade Ms. Altnau - Special Education Ms. Brown - Art Ms. Gower - Music/Band
In addition, Mr. Walter will now be our STEM teacher. His class will focus on enhancing all students’ Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics experiences to better align with our science and technology focus. We will continue to utilize Promethean interactive whiteboards in each classroom, as well as providing a mobile device for each 2nd through 5th grade student to use at school. Finally, we will be piloting a brand-new science curriculum called STEMscopes that promises to engage students more than ever.
I am so excited to get the school year started and can’t wait to meet you all! If you get the chance, please stop by and say hello.
