Fawn Guerra, the assistant principal at Northeast Elementary in Brighton for the past two years, is the school’s new principal.

Guerra replaces current principal, Toby Karr, who will move to another district elementary school beginning in the 2024-2025 school year.

“Throughout the principal selection process, Ms. Guerra's unwavering dedication to our community and her visionary approach to improving academic performance shone brightly,” said 27J Schools Executive Director of Schools Brett Minne. “Her leadership style is characterized by empathy, collaboration, and a deep-seated belief in the potential of every student. I have full confidence that under her guidance, Northeast Elementary will continue to thrive and flourish.”

Guerra began her career in Jefferson County Public Schools as a third-grade teacher. She came to 27J’s Pennock Elementary in 2015 where she spent four years as a fifth-grade teacher. She moved to Northeast in 2019 to serve as an instructional coach and was then named assistant principal in 2022. She earned her bachelor’s degree from the University of Northern Colorado and a master’s degree in Educational Leadership from Regis University in 2020. 

Guerra moves into her new role at Northeast July 1, 2024.
