Dear West Jeff Elementary School Families,

My name is Darby Brady and I am honored and excited to be a part of the West Jeff Elementary community and serve as your new principal. West Jeff has involved, supportive families and a dedicated, talented staff who are committed to the success of all students. I am grateful to be part of a school community that creates unique learning experiences while also remaining focused on each student’s growth and success.

My roots run deep in this community, having been raised in Bailey and beginning my career as a teacher at Deer Creek Elementary. I have worked in public education for almost two decades as a paraprofessional, teacher, peer observer, coach, assistant principal and principal. This is the start of my sixth year in Jeffco school leadership, my third as a principal. 

My family has lived in Conifer for 9 years and my children, a 3rd grader and a 7th grader, attend Jeffco Public Schools. As an educator, parent, and community member, I am dedicated to the success of every student in Jeffco Public Schools and to ensuring your child has the best possible educational experience at West Jeff Elementary.

I have been working closely with the staff here at West Jeff to ensure a smooth transition. I am committed to honoring the traditions, culture and practices that make West Jeff a wonderful place to learn, while also looking for opportunities to continue to improve our practices. Our theme for this year is “Learning is a journey that never ends” which resonates deeply with my personal dedication to being a lifelong learner and instilling a love of learning and wonder in our students. I believe that as adults we model this for our children by continuing to learn and being open to opportunities to deepen our understanding of our chosen interests. Together, we can help all students at West Jeff excel and achieve their full potential.

I am so looking forward to meeting all the students, parents, families and community members that make up this wonderful school. My door and email are always open and I welcome your input, questions, concerns and ideas. I look forward to a successful, joyful, wonder-filled year of learning for all students.

With gratitude,
