My name is Dana Lott and I am the Social Emotional Learning Specialist here at Northglenn. While this is a new role for me, this is my 22nd year in education. I have served as a Digital Literacy Partner/Teacher Librarian at Thornton Middle and Riverdale Elementary. My classroom experience was at the elementary level--1st and 2nd grades, though I have taught tech-based semester long courses at the middle school level. I am energized by connecting with colleagues through co-teaching and supporting their objectives for teaching and learning as well as integrating structures to support student engagement and their emotional well being. A positive school culture and building relationships have been passions of mine since I began my education career, so I am eager to work with the students, staff, and families in our community!
On a personal note, I live in Westminster with my husband Jim, my son Ethan, and our dog, Gracie June. I enjoy going for walks, gardening, as well as cooking and trying new recipes. I love listening to audiobooks and podcasts and enjoy the satisfaction of tackling home improvement projects. I also enjoy cheering my son from the sidelines as he plays competitive lacrosse!
