My name is Kim Caplan and I’m the School Programs Specialist for the Pikes Peak and Western Slope Regions. I support CSI schools in developing and strengthening a variety of programs to improve outcomes for all students. My primary areas of focus are gifted education, preparation for college and career, and teacher/principal induction programs. I joined the CSI Team in August 2015 eager to continue my work to provide high quality educational options for students and families. I’ve held a variety of positions over the past 13 years including teaching middle school science, serving as principal of an alternative high school and managing a division of 18 charter schools in Colorado, Arizona and Ohio. I am currently licensed as a principal and teacher with endorsements in secondary science and gifted education. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Biology and Master’s Degree in Teaching from the University of Virginia.
