Our Principal

Hello Thunder Vista P-8 School Community!

It’s an honor and a privilege to be the principal of Adams 12 Five Star Schools newest school, Thunder Vista P-8, home of the Buffalo.  I’m thrilled to be a part of this amazing school community.  I can already tell from the family and community members I’ve had the opportunity to meet that our school will be a caring, welcoming place where students and families feel valued.  I hope you have been excited as I have to watch the structure for our new school begin to rise out of the ground.  I’ve enjoyed the work happening with all of our stakeholders who will share the responsibility of engaging in the thinking and learning that will happen at this school.  As fun as it is to watch our school come to life and grow, it’s also important to remember that it is the teaching and learning that will eventually happen inside that matters the most.  Our job will be to inspire students, grow our future leaders, and give them opportunities to inquire into their learning every day.  We’ll work hard, but we’ll also laugh a lot and have fun in the process!  

Before we know it, the Thunder Vista construction site will be a beautiful building and a home where dreaming, wondering, leading, building, teaching and learning will come alive.

I invite you to follow our journey at thundervista.adams12.org and, if you have any questions, please contact us.

Warm Regards,

Teresa Benallo
