Principal's Bio

Twombly Elementary School
School Year 2021/2022
Julie A. Baker, Principal

I am starting my 31st exciting year in Education!
I began my journey as a High School Teacher and Coach (Track and Volleyball) and from there transitioned into the Assistant Principal/Athletic Director role. I then moved to the Elementary level and was the Principal of two Elementary schools-one of which was an old rural one-room schoolhouse! After 12 years in Elementary, my Superintendent asked me to serve as Interim Principal for the Middle School. Currently, I am very happy to share that I am serving in my 9th year as Principal of Twombly Elementary. 
I graduated from the University of Wyoming and received my Masters degree in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies from the University of Northern Colorado. 
I have three grown boys, all of which live near me in Colorado.
I love to golf, camp, fish, read, bike, snowshoe and am a football nut!-GO BRONCOS!

I am starting my 11th year in education and ALL 11 of them have been at Twombly Elementary.

I was a classroom teacher for the first 6 years of my career teaching everything from CLD, 5th Grade and 3rd Grade.  In 2017, I was fortunate enough to become Twombly’s new Assistant Principal.  Principal Baker has been a fantastic mentor and I consider myself super lucky to have her as my teammate!

I graduated from the University of Northern Colorado (GO BEARS!) and received my Masters degree in Leadership in Educational Administration from Capella University in Minnesota.

I have been married for 4 years to my beautiful wife, Chelsie, who is also an employee in Weld Re-8 School District.  We love the community so much that we moved here in 2019.  The two of us are dog parents to a yellow lab named Mila.  

I enjoy playing basketball, golfing, camping and traveling with my family.  I am also a HUGE sports fan of the Denver Nuggets, University of Nebraska Football, and THE LAS VEGAS RAIDERS!
