Leadership

Teresa Sena-Klava, Principal

Teresa’s career as an educator and leader began in 1988 in the Denver Public Schools. She served as a teacher, mathematics instructional specialist and administrator in the Denver Public Schools and the university level.  As a parent of four children, Teresa believes that parents and community are essential partners to ensure student success. Her parents, both retired DPS principals, have inspired her to continually seek opportunities for access and excellence for all students.

Teresa earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Education with a minor in Bilingual Education at Metropolitan State College, a Master of Arts degree in Education Leadership and Policy at the University of Denver, and is currently pursuing her Ed.D. in Educational Leadership at the University of Denver.

Julieann Trujillo, Assistant Principal

Ms. TrujilloJulieann’s passion for education has been fueled by the quote, “education is the most powerful tool you can use to change the world”, penned by the late world leader Nelson Mandela.  She is a first-generation college graduate from her family, earning a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology from the University of Colorado, Boulder.  Her path as an educator has been varied, from teaching middle school electives, working with local and international non-profits, developing service learning programs in schools, leading pilot initiatives for students to receive targeted math interventions, and serving as the Dean of Students and Culture at West Leadership Academy.

Julieann obtained a Master of Arts degree in Counseling from Denver Seminary and a Principal Licensure Certificate from the Education Leadership and Policy Studies program at the University of Denver.  She believes that her own educational opportunities drive her to ensure that our next generation of leaders have access to a meaningful, high quality, and rigorous education… because with that, they too can change the world.
