Mr. Adam Barela

I graduated from the University of Northern Colorado in 1996 with a Bachelor of Arts with an emphasis in Mathematics.  I taught for ten years at the middle school level as a math teacher and coach.  I coached football, wrestling, basketball, and track at the middle school and high school level.  As I was teaching, I went back to school and received my masters from Colorado Christian University with my Masters of Arts in Curriculum and Instruction in 2005.   I also went back to school and completed my Principal Licensure program through UCCS in 2006.   I have been in administration for about 14 years and have been at Springs Studio for four years.  Springs Studio has provided me with a fresh look at education and has helped me remember why I have gotten into education for the kids.  Building relationships with families and students have been my focus at Springs Studio.  I love working with families to help students be successful.
