An Unrelenting Focus on Results

At Mesa, our focus is results for our students in the areas of academics and behaviors.  We know that Mesa has the potential to be the top-rated elementary school in the state of New Mexico, and everything we do will be focused on that goal.  Our students know that we believe in their ability to learn at high levels, to create safety, security, and acceptance for themselves and others, and to persevere through hard things.  We are Roadrunners!

Hi!  My name is Jen Hufman, currently serving CCSD students, families, and staff as the Interim Principal at Mesa Elementary and Director of Curriculum and Instruction.  I have been an educator for 30 years, and have had roles as a teacher, assistant principal, principal, and coordinator in schools throughout Colorado.  At CCSD, I most recently served as principal at Naschitti Elementary School, prior to joining the SAO team in Shiprock, then coming to Mesa to serve as Interim Principal.  I earned my bachelor's and master's degrees from Adams State University in Alamosa, Colorado.  I currently reside outside of Dolores, Colorado with my husband, Bob.  Two of our children live in Yuma, Arizona, with their families, including our 6 grandchildren.  And two of our children are students at Humboldt State University in Arcata, California.
