Mr. Brett Cornelius

Hello! I am a Colorado native (born and raised near Denver) that began an educational career at UCCS studying environmental science. While investingating soil at Garden of the Gods and rock formations on Pikes Peak was thrilling, I chose to take a new path toward a teaching certificate. I graduated from Arizona State University and taught in Queen Creek for 6 years. I worked as the Department Chair of the language arts team and I was responsible for the 7th grade honors students and AVID. 


I recently moved back to Colorado and look forward to creating new memories with my Colorado students. I am hopeful we can relate since I am a master Call of Duty competitor; I can navigate TikTok; I enjoy a good Netflix binge-watching weekend, and I am pretty adaptable and flexible with change. My teaching philosophy is this: ALL kids from ALL walks of life deserve respect, high quality education, and opportunity. It takes a village to maintain a village and I am grateful and honored to have the role that I do.
