       Dear Montezuma-Cortez School District RE-1 Students, Staff and Parents,

      I would like to take this opportunity to say how honored and excited I am to serve as the Superintendent of Montezuma-Cortez School District. My husband and I are proud parents of three Montezuma-Cortez School District graduates. It is a privilege to lead the staff, students and parents of this great community.

      Montezuma-Cortez School District is known for its incredible staff with their commitment to student excellence. As the district strives for academic excellence, the focus will be to develop a strong partnership with the community and parents coming together to support the district’s mission of “working together for educational excellence” by providing our students with an education that ensures they will be successful in their post-graduate careers.

      Please feel free to contact me at the district office at 970-565-7282 ext. 1115.
