MEET OUR PRINCIPAL 

Denise Rubio-Gurnett

I feel very privileged to be an educator, one with 28 years of experience. I started when I was 12!
My professional portfolio includes teaching for 17 years; taking on duties as an assistant principal for 2 years and starting my principalship at Steele Elementary for three years. I was selected to open a new school and was part of the planning and all the hiring for McAuliffe Elementary School for 6 years in District 11.
In 2012, I moved to Trailblazer Elementary. I believe that District 11 is the best school district in the Colorado Springs area choosing D11 schools for both my children, who were Doherty High School graduates, and now attend college. I will make decisions keeping children first and I look forward to serving our Trailblazer community.
