Meet the Front Office



 [email protected]  Welcome to the Cub Family! My name is Michelle Franci, and I am the proud principal of Stone Mountain. I have been in education for 29 years and have taught 1st-6th grade in both California and Colorado. I opened Stone Mountain in 2007 as a teacher. In 2013, I became the Assistant Principal and have been the Principal at SME since 2017. Stone Mountain is the best school on the planet- no doubt! Stone Mountain runs through my veins and I am so proud to be a Cub! Outside of school, I love traveling with my husband and daughter and trying new restaurants in the area. My daughter, Kylee, is a graduate of ThunderRidge High School and Colorado School of Mines. She was once a Stone Mountain Cub!  

Assistant Principal 
[email protected]
Hey there! I'm Chloe Daugherty, the Assistant Principal of Stone Mountain Elementary School, and I'm absolutely thrilled to welcome you to the Cub Community! I've been a special education teacher in Douglas County School District for the past five years, and I'm deeply passionate about helping students succeed through differentiated instruction, positive connections, and a love for learning. Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Jared, and our dog, Chance. Whether we're hitting the slopes or finding new trails, we love exploring the outdoors together! I look forward to supporting the students, staff, and community members of Stone Mountain through open communication, collaboration, and celebrations!

Professional Learning Specialist 
 [email protected]  

This will be my 26th year in education. For the first six years of my career I taught 2nd and 3rd-grade before moving to 5th when Stone Mountain opened in 2007. While at SME, I've taught 5th-grade (all subjects), 6th-grade math, and 5th-grade science/social studies. This will be my fourth year as the Professional Learning Specialist (PLS) at Stone Mountain where I am an Instructional Coach for all staff. I love working at Stone Mountain and am also a proud parent of a cub (my daughter, McKenna, is in 6th-grade)! Outside of school, I enjoy watching sports, hanging out with my family on our patio, spending time with friends, and walking our mini goldendoodle, Rocky.

 [email protected] This is my 6th year at SME and I love my role as Registrar and working with our amazing front office team. My oldest daughter is at Ranch View Middle School and my younger daughter will be in 6th grade at SME. I look forward to a great school year.

I love being the Computer Support Technician at Stone Mountain Elementary School and have worked at DCSD since 2021. Although I grew up in Utah, I've lived in Colorado since 2001. My husband and I have four children, two of whom are married, and they all have graduated (or will soon!) from ThunderRidge High School. I enjoy traveling and spending time with my family. 


Building Engineer 
School Security

A Big Hello to Everyone!
My name is Vic Thiret (Mr. Vic).  DCSD has added an extra layer of security to Stone Mountain Elementary, and I am your Campus Security Specialist.  I work closely with school administrators, District Security, and the School Resource Officer to provide full-time proactive security services to our students, staff, and building. 
I retired in May 2022 from the Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office after 30 years of serving my community. While at the Sheriff's Office, I had the opportunity to work in many positions and assignments.  My favorite was a 12-year assignment to the Training Section where I managed the agency skill instructors, and taught in-service training and Police Academy classes. I was recruited by the National Sheriff's Association to help fine-tune and co-teach a national emergency management model specifically designed for law enforcement and community partners.  
I started working at SME in May and have started rooting myself in this fantastic setting. The students, staff, and parents work so well together. I have seen a lot of things in my career and I am not afraid to say that many businesses, communities, and individuals could learn from your cooperation in building a strong foundation for our future.  I am proud to be a part of your team. Please feel free to contact me with any suggestions, issues, or ideas.
