Brian Schipper (pronounced: Skipper) had his first teaching job with District 70 in 1999 at Sierra Vista Primary as their physical education instructor. After two years he left for what he thought were the “greener pastures” of Canon City High School where, in addition to PE, he taught health and science.

“It wasn’t long after I left District 70, that I realized I wanted to come back,” he shared. “I just couldn’t get back in at the time. It just wasn’t the right time.”

Now is the right time. After six years in Canon City, 12 years in Florence, and the acquisition of an Administration Degree in 2005, Schipper is back at D70 as the Principal of Craver Middle School.

Not only is he excited about his return to the district, but he is also excited about the opportunity to work with middle school students. “The complexity of a middle school child’s life is amazing,” he said. “As an educator you can always help change lives, but middle school is such a dynamic time. It feels right being here."

Only as a student teacher has Schipper had a chance to work with middle school students. “It’s just never been in the cards for me to be in a middle school except as a student teacher. And to be here in D70 which is a big district with a small district school is a great feeling.”
