Mr. Blake Hesselberg

My name is Blake Hesselberg, and I have the distinct pleasure of serving as the assistant principal of Ridgeview Elementary! My educational career has spanned nearly two decades, and I have taught in three different school districts including two in Southern Colorado and one on the Western Slope. My teaching experience ranges from both the elementary and middle school levels as well as an elementary academic coach for math, science, social studies, and enrichments. In addition to teaching, I have coached high school and middle school softball and boys and girls middle school basketball. 

I am a Colorado Native and hail from the Western Slope town of Rifle, Colorado. I moved to Colorado Springs when I began my college journey at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs where I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Geography and Environmental Studies and my Master’s Degree in Elementary Curriculum and Instruction. I later obtained my Principal Licensure through the University of Phoenix.

My wife and I have three daughters and one grandson. Together we enjoy being out and about either participating in or watching sporting events or being outdoors. 

I feel blessed each and every day to have the opportunity to work with your students. I thoroughly enjoy meeting and greeting your children as well as getting to know them. My goal is to provide a safe and welcoming environment where children are given the opportunity to grow both academically and personally.
