Leadership

Interim Principal, Robbin Trotter – robbin_trotter@dpsk12.net

Hello Stedman community! My name is Robbin Trotter and I will be serving as your Learn to Lead Principal Resident for the 2023-2024 school year and as your Interim Principal starting January 2024. I am a mother of two, grandmother of two, woman of faith and native of Denver, Colorado (more specifically the Far Northeast community). My journey as an educator began over 15 years ago and I have taught all grades K-5 in both Orlando Florida and Denver Colorado. I’ve held various leadership roles such as grade level chair, instructional coach (literacy and math), Senior Team Lead/Interventionist, Assistant Principal and now Learn to Lead Principal Resident. I am an advocate for educational equity and I am most passionate about closing opportunity gaps and creating opportunities to ensure the success of ALL students. Through my educational experiences I have been able to support students and families from many different cultures and backgrounds. These experiences have helped mold me into the leader I am today. They’ve also taught me many valuable lessons around intercultural diversity, equity and inclusion in our classrooms and the significance of children being able to show up as their authentic selves and not lose sight of who they are in order to fit into an educational system or box. I believe in the power and beauty of creating unique experiences for all students and look forward to our journey together as learners. 

Assistant Principal, Olga “Jani” Martinez – olga_martinez@dpsk12.net

I’m a Senior Team Lead, Biliteracy Content Lead, and Interventionist. I’m a dedicated teacher and it is a wonderful opportunity for me to teach my native language. I love working with this community and supporting our students for success. Stedman has been my home and I’m so proud to be part of it!

Dean of Culture, Thomas Jackson – thomas_jackson1@dpsk12.net

My name is Thomas “TJ” Jackson and I am a proud Denver native and DPS alumni. I am a family man and have been blessed with 3 amazing children. I am a huge sports fan, a foodie and most importantly, I am a man of faith. I lead from my values of equity, advocacy and relationship building and for over 20 years I’ve worked with Denver youth in many different capacities. From coaching sports to mentoring and counseling to child advocacy for at-risk youth I’ve learned many valuable lessons and I’ve had many invaluable experiences which have shaped my passion for educational equity in underserved communities. I bring with me a diverse range of experiences which have given me the opportunity to positively impact lives and make a difference in the Park Hill community. Over the past 12 years I’ve worked in a traditional middle school setting and I am excited to transition and continue my journey by serving in the Stedman community as the Dean of Culture.

Maria Carrillo (Spanish Immersion) – MARIA_CARRILLOPARRAGA@dpsk12.net

¡Hola a todos! Soy María Carrillo, profesora de infantil en el programa de inmersión en español y estoy encantada de seguir trabajando en Stedman con vosotros y con nuestros bebés en esta maravillosa comunidad.
Soy de Murcia, España (¡muy cerca del mar Mediterráneo!) Mi familia y yo decidimos mudarnos a EEUU en 2014 para conocer otras culturas y vivir experiencias diferentes. Nuestro primer destino fue Santa Fe (NM) y luego nos mudamos a Denver en 2016, desde entonces trabajo en DPS.

Me encanta este trabajo y disfruto cada día que pasa en el aula con nuestros bebés. Siempre he pensado que los maestros ayudamos a nuestros estudiantes no solo a aprender sobre el contenido académico, sino que también somos parte del proceso de crecimiento de estas pequeñas personas, y ayudamos a prepararlos para el mundo. Del mismo modo, ellos me ayudan a crecer cada día y a ser mejor profesor y persona.
Me encanta escuchar música (muy fuerte), bailar, leer, pasar tiempo con mi familia y amigos y siempre me verás con una gran sonrisa en la cara.Gracias y nos vemos en la escuela!

Hello everyone! I am Maria Carrillo, a kindergarten teacher in the Spanish immersion program and I am happy to continue working at Stedman with you and our babies in this wonderful community. I am from Murcia, Spain (very close to the Mediterranean Sea!) My family and I decided to move to the USA in 2014 to learn about other cultures and live different experiences. Our first destination was Santa Fe (NM) and then moved to Denver in 2016, since then I have been working for DPS.

I love this job and enjoy every day that is spent in the classroom with our babies. In my opinion, I think that as teachers help our students not only learn about academic content, but we are also part of the growing process of these little people and help prepare them for the world. In the same way, they help me grow every day and become a better teacher and person. I love listening to music (very loud), dancing, reading, and spending time with my family and friends and you will always see me with a big smile on my face. Thank you and see you soon!

Benjamin DeLawyer (Spanish Immersion) – BENJAMIN_DELAWYER@dpsk12.net

My name is Ben DeLawyer and I am one of Stedman’s 2nd Grade Spanish Immersion teachers. I enjoy working with young children and could not be more excited to be doing so in a dual immersion classroom at the 2nd Grade level. A few years ago I moved home to the United States after teaching in Pamplona, Spain for three years, where my passion for the Spanish language came alive. Having been an educator in Spain and learning a second language myself, I strongly believe in and value bilingual education, especially from a young age. Being bilingual in Spanish in the 21st century will open many, many doors for students, and I’m looking forward to contributing as much as I can to our young learners at Stedman to help them achieve that. On a personal level I love traveling, camping, outer space, ping-pong, frisbee, soccer, card games, board games, chess, and spending time with family and friends. See you soon!
