Kristopher DeCola
I graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder with a degree in Sociology. I did my licensure work with the Urban Teacher Preparation Program at the University of Colorado at Denver, I am currently working on on my masters degree in Linguistically Diverse Education for Elementary learners.
I love being a part of the amazing spirit of learning and inquiring shown by Sanchez students. To have the opportunity to see how Sanchez students grow into active, educated, and inspiring community citizens is the reason I am at Sanchez.

I have a beautiful wife Tiffany, a 2 year old son Grady, a four month old daughter Laine, and a Golden retriever named Oliver. I love spending time with all of them together. My family is my priority in life and I enjoy them each and every day.
What are your hobbies/ interests? I like to spend time with family and friends, I enjoy playing with my son as much as possible, playing guitar, playing golf, basketball and softball in the summer. I enjoy listening to music, grilling out and skateboarding as well. Enjoying the Colorado in any way I can.
