Michael Keppler Ed.D.
As a school, we value teacher collaboration focused on student achievement and growth. Teachers at Coyote Ridge participate in learning labs where they observe one another in the act of teaching and reflect and ask questions to improve their professional practice. We also have taken a number of steps to ensure students are allowed opportunities for movement during the school day. Ultimately, I believe my job as the principal is to support teachers and students as they collaborate and learn from each other in a safe and respectful learning environment.Prior to coming to Coyote Ridge, I worked as the primary principal at MEF International School in Istanbul, Turkey for two years and as the principal at Niwot Elementary in the St. Vrain School District for ten years. When I am not at school I enjoy playing soccer, traveling and learning about new cultures, spending time with my wife and two daughters, and taking advantage of the amazing Colorado outdoors.
I feel fortunate to work at such an exceptional school where staff members are focused on enhancing the strengths of all students and where parents work in partnership with teachers to ensure students achieve high standards. I have an open door policy, so please do not hesitate to schedule an appointment or send me a note with any comments or questions you may have regarding the education of your child.
