Hello Colburn Cougars,
I am excited to embark on the current school year with you! The 2017-2018 School year will prove to be one of growth, discovery, and collaboration. AESD is a district that is focused on the growth of its students and staff. I am excited to be part of the Aileen Colburn staff as I am already aware of the dedication and heart that the staff has for their students.
Each year I have experienced the beginning of the year jitters. These jitters precede the start of school, interrupting my thoughts and sleep. I find that each year I am so excited to meet our new students and begin work with the wonderful people of AESD to become a better leader and teacher! My teaching jitters began nearly 15 years ago at Mitchell Senior when I was hired to instruct 7th and 8th grade students. I am happy to say that my experiences at Mitchell, Bellevue, and my short time at Aileen Colburn have allowed me to partner with strong professional communities. Each one has provided me with invaluable lessons and experiences. I hope to continue this partnership with the Colburn staff and parents to support our students’ growth. Please join me on this great adventure!
Principal, Aileen Colburn
