Principal's Corner

Principal Susan Altman


Welcome to the 2016/2017 school year! 
 My name is Susan Altman and I am the new principal at Telluride Elementary School.  I have been involved at the school for 19 years as a parent, teacher, and literacy coach. I am a National Board Certified Teacher and have taught grades K, 1, and 2 over the course of my 15 years on staff.  I received my Masters of Education in Curriculum and Instruction in 2012 and my Colorado Principal License in July of 2016.

I can’t tell you how excited I am to work with the students, staff, parents and community in this new role.  This year we have completed our transition to include programming in both English and Spanish in all grades PreK-2.  We have 3 new preschool classrooms as well as a beautiful new preschool outdoor learning center.  We hope you have time to stop by and take a look around.

I look forward to meeting you all.  Please know that my door is always open!
