Dear Bright Elementary families,
It is an honor to introduce myself as the new principal at Bright Elementary. I am truly honored to become part of a community, which has already given me such a warm welcome! In just the few interactions I’ve had with staff, students and families so far, it’s become very clear that this school is a unique and a special place. I am truly grateful to be a part of it.
I come to you from Peebles with 10 years of experience as an educator. I have spent the last 10 years teaching middle school science. Throughout those 10 years I have also been lucky enough to coach a variety of different sports at every level of competition in the school system. You can say I have a tremendous amount of love for kids.
My philosophy is a simple one. Every child can learn and every child can grow. We have a great staff here at Bright Local and my goal is to put the teachers in the best situation possible to teach and for the teachers to put the students in the best situation to learn and grow. As your principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors-teachers, students and parents-are excited to be here! This attitude enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun, and nurturing environment. Please feel free to call or email me to discuss any concerns you might have throughout the school year.
Mr. Ty Stephens
Principal, Bright Elementary School
