Meet Dana Stanley!

Mrs. Stanley is beginning her 12th year as Lydia Rippey's principal. She spent 14 years as a classroom teacher, before she became an administrator. She received her Bachelor's Degree from Fort Lewis College, then worked to earn her Masters Degree in Administration from New Mexico Highlands University.

Dana lives on an 80 acre ranch with her family. She spends her time taking care of cattle, horses, and other livestock. Most weekends you can find her at rodeos, or other outdoor activities.

Watching kids grow and learn every year makes her heart soar!
