Superintendent's Honor Roll

Tracy Stegall, Principal, Birch Elementary School
Won the 2013 Joe Todd Annual Service Award from the Colorado Council for Exceptional Children AND the 2013 Heart of Broomfield Educator award from the Broomfield Community Foundation

Tracy was nominated for the Joe Todd Annual Service award by David Sudia, Intensive Emotion/Behavior Teacher at Birch Elementary, who wrote:


I have never met a school administrator as dedicated to the best practices and outcomes for her exceptional children as Tracy. … Tracy has made herself a profoundly competent special education professional, while trusting her staff to make the right decisions. She is active in advocating for us at the district level, in terms of funding, programming and assistance. … Where she really goes above and beyond though, is in creating systems and networks that support the kids.
This year, her major project outside of her duties as principal has been creating a non-profit called Broomfield Buddies. She started this project in response to the Newtown shootings, and it brings together local government, social and mental health services, faith-based organizations and other non-profits to provide comprehensive, three-tiered mental health support to all of the schools in Broomfield County.
In a supporting letter of nomination, Birch Literacy Interventionist Carlo Morreale wrote:
Tracy respects where you are and supports you with where you want to go. She meets all humans where they are. Tracy teaches the world that we should celebrate everyone's differences.


Tracy was also selected by the Broomfield Community Foundation to receive the 2013 Heart of Broomfield Educator award. She was recognized along with other Heart of Broomfield awardees at an April 14 celebration at the Omni Interlocken Resort.
