 Franci
MICHELLE FRANCI
Principal 

 mlfranci@dcsdk12.org  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 26 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 I am learning how to play golf. My daughter, Kylee, is a senior at Colorado School of Mines and she was once a Stone Mountain Cub!  

 Kruse
KATIE KRUSE
Assistant Principal 
kskruse@dcsdk12.org Hello! I am blessed to be the Assistant Principal of our amazing SME Cubs! This is my 4th year as Assistant Principal and I have loved every minute of it! Prior to my time at SME, I taught Marketing, Business and a mix of other classes at ThunderRidge High School just down the street for 10 years. I adore the connections we have in the TRHS Feeder! I am so proud that my own 3 boys, niece and nephew are attending SME this year! I am a native to Highlands Ranch and have grown up with this community! I am so happy to raise my own kids here too! I love going on adventures with my family, attending Broadway musicals, and escaping to the mountains when we can! It's always a good day to have a good day!

 Smith
ALISON SMITH
Professional Learning Specialist 
 assmith@dcsdk12.org  

This will be my 23rd 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. Last year, I moved into the Professional Learning Specialist (PLS) role. I love working at Stone Mountain and am also a proud parent of a cub (my daughter, McKenna, is in 3rd-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.
