Kim Knol

Kim Knol, Coordinator of the MTSS program at Aspen Elementary School, leads teams in determining next steps for students based on data and input from teachers and families. With 28 years as a public educator Kim believes every member of the school community-teacher and student alike-is capable of leading in unique ways with a little encouragement and opportunity. Collective leadership, Kim believes, builds purpose when balanced with courage and compassion in an environment where students can discover their true passions.

Kim is trained in Adaptive Schools, Our Community Listens, and the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People-all of which have influenced her leadership beliefs and desire to empower others to lead. This includes facilitating Leader in Me classes for Colorado educators through COpilot, as well as giving students experience through school-based leadership teams.

Kim holds a BS in Elementary Education from Florida Atlantic University and a MS degree in Teacher Leadership from Walden University. She is also a National Board Certified teacher in early/middle childhood literacy.
