Please join me in welcoming our four new D’Evelyn faculty members for the 2019-2020 school year. D’Evelyn follows a thorough and rigorous hiring process, as the hiring of teachers ranks among the most important decisions we make in our school. Each of these candidates demonstrated an understanding of the school philosophy, a willingness to work in our participatory management system, content mastery, and pedagogical strengths in their respective interview processes. We are fortunate to add such talented, knowledgeable, and dedicated professionals to our school community.
Gary Black - Mr. Black will be teaching Spanish 1, Spanish 2, and French 1. He joined the D’Evelyn community after teaching for several years in Denver Public Schools, most recently at Kennedy High School.
Katie Lewis - Mrs. Lewis will be our new Study Hall and Homework Center coordinator. Mrs. Lewis served as our Health Aide last year, but previously taught at Our Lady of Fatima Catholic School. Mrs. Lewis is no stranger to D’Evelyn, as she is a proud member of the graduating Class of 2010.
Michael Wolfe - Mr. Wolfe will be teaching 9th grade Literature & Composition and 11th grade American Literature. He returned to D’Evelyn after teaching several years at Lakewood High School. Mr. Wolfe taught at D’Evelyn for one year in 2014-2015, and we are thrilled to welcome him back to our community.
Brooke Zitricki - Ms. Zitricki will be teaching 7th grade Life Science and 9th grade Biology. She joined the D’Evelyn community after teaching for several years in the Cherry Creek School District.
While students have been working with these new teachers for several days, parents will have an opportunity to meet them in our upcoming Back to School Night, on Thursday, August 22nd. Thank you for joining me in welcoming these new teachers to the D’Evelyn faculty.
