Amy Tracy – Principal

I earned my BA in Elementary Education from the University of Wyoming in 2000. In the past, I’ve taught 2nd, 3rd and 4th grades as well as middle school math. All but two years of my teaching career have been in a charter school setting. While working at a k-12 charter school in Westminster, I wrote and published three history units and one science unit for the Colorado Core Knowledge Foundation. In 2008, I earned my MA in Administration and Supervision.

I joined the Aurora Academy family in 2015 as an assistant principal and in 2018 transitioned into my current role as principal.

My journey as an educator began with my BA in Art Education and Illustration. I initially taught Middle School Art part time while assisting in a general education classroom. In that classroom I realized that I could use my art to teach all subjects and make a lasting impact on students by presenting content in more memorable ways. After that I got my MSED in Elementary Education and went on teaching general education from there. 

Between 2003 and 2018, I taught every grade level K-6 and both Middle School and 9th grade art. I became interested in the idea of administration when I was inspired by a principal who was very involved in the day-to-day life at the school I was teaching in. I went on to become the Teacher on Assignment Dean of Students to see what administration would be like firsthand. I loved it so much and found that my ability to reach and help students was so much greater in that role than it had ever been before. I then went to Western Governors University and graduated in 2021 with my MSEDL. With that degree I was promoted to Assistant Principal. 

I came to Aurora Academy as the K-4 Assistant Principal in the 2022-2023 school year. During that year I had the opportunity to get to know the amazing kids who learn here. It has been a wonderful experience so far. This community is one that I am honored to be a part of, and I look forward to continuing to serve this community as an advocate for the children.

I am excited to be the 5-8 grade assistant principal at Aurora Academy. In the past, I have taught grades 5-12 as a science teacher. My leadership experience began as a high school science department head, dean of culture and instruction, instructional coach, and assistant principal. I have had the opportunity to teach in various parts of the country (Memphis, TN, New Olreans, LA, Tampa, FL, Louisville, KY and Denver, CO). The past three years I served as the assistant principal at Ricks Center for Gifted Children. Prior to that, I served as the Dean of Culture at Boston p-8 and the Dean of Instruction at Aurora Central High School. I hold a bachelor’s degree in secondary science education from Mississippi State University, master’s degree in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies from the University of Denver and am currently seeking an EdD from the University of Denver with a focus on equitable and social justice centered curriculum and instruction. It is an honor to be back serving as a school leader in Aurora and looking forward to the opportunity to support the Aurora Academy community. Go Falcons!

I am grateful to be in my 8th year at Aurora Academy, as I thoroughly enjoy watching our students grow over the years. I have been very lucky to have been in several roles at this school over the years. I believe that all my experiences allow me to serve this school to the best of my ability. 

I received my Bachelor's in Education from Kansas State University. During my time as a 2nd grade teacher, I went back to school to earn my Master's in Education from Walden University. This year will be my 17th year in education, and I can't even believe how the time has flown. As I continue with my role of Director of Curriculum and Assessment, I find myself relying heavily on my past experiences in education as a 2nd grade teacher, a 4th grade teacher, reading interventionist, and instructional coach. 

When I am not at work, I enjoy spending my time with my husband and two boys.  We are a very active family who enjoys taking advantage of all the beauty and activities Colorado has to offer.  I may not be a native, but I sure am grateful to be here, as I am in my 17th year of being a Colorado resident.
