Katya is the high school Program Director. Katya grew up attending Denver Public Schools, she left Denver to attend Carleton College in Minnesota and to explore teaching and farming. After returning to the Denver area she started working in DPS and quickly found DMHS to be a professional home that has a strong community of committed staff working to meet each student's individual and holistic needs. Katya is happy to have been with DMHS (in varying capacities) since its beginnings, and is excited to be working with an amazing team of students and teachers to strengthen our high school as Program Director. Outside of the classroom, Katya runs a small CSA farm and plays a lot of soccer.
