It is with great excitement that I am writing to introduce myself!  My name is Matthew L Baca, and I will be serving the community as one of the Assistant Principals for Cripple Creek-Victor School District.  The community has made me feel very welcome during the last four years in which we have called it home, and I look forward to expanding our relationship as the year progresses.

My resumé includes work in Denver, Boulder, and, Boston, with experience in educational software and curriculum development as well as K-12 education. My education includes a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Arts and Animation from the Colorado Institute of Art in Denver in 2003. I have since furthered my education through the completion UCCS/Pikes Peak BOCES Teacher in Residency Program run in 2016, and the completion of Adams State/Mountain BOCES Principal Licenship Program in 2018.  Currently, I am working to earn a Master’s of Science Degree with an emphasis in Strategic Innovation and Change from the University of Denver.

As the school year approaches, I look forward to partnering with parents and the community to bring the absolute best educational experience to our students and families.
