Meet our Principal

My name is Sheri’ Spenhoff and I am honored to have been chosen as the next Principal of Bishop Elementary.  I share Bishop’s vision of creating a positive learning culture for ALL!  I felt a sense of community and “kids first” when I visited Bishop Elementary.  I am excited to work with such a talented and dedicated group of educators and make Bishop my educational home.

I come to Bishop with over 27 years in education.  My experience as a teacher, instructional coach, dean of students and assistant principal have prepared me for this opportunity.  My passion for students and families is what drives me to lead and be part of a supportive learning community.

My vision is to continue to foster a safe, inclusive and nurturing environment where each has the opportunity to succeed.  I am committed to working collaboratively with staff, parents and community members to provide an exceptional learning experience for all students.  


I am a mother of 3 boys, 2 in college and my youngest will be a Senior this fall.  My husband and I have called Colorado home for the past 29 years.  As a mother and educator, I believe education is not solely about academics, but also about character development and preparing kids to be well rounded lifelong learners who will be prepared and thrive in all aspects of their lives.

I am eager to get to know each of you and work together to continue to make Bishop a great school for ALL and continue to develop and grow as a community of learners and leaders.
