Principal Michele Prusinowski:
Michele graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Secondary Education in May, 1985 and has taught a variety of ages and grade levels since then as a teacher in high school, preschool, and middle school.  With a Master of Science in Curriculum and Instruction from PCC, she  supports teachers in the JICS middle school.  Her educational career has involved being a small business owner, teacher, coach, mentor and administrator.  As a leader, Michele desires to join hands with parents as they raise their children and provide access to an excellent education for all students. She longs to build a bridge so Teachers, Administration, Parents, and Students (TAPS) can interact and communicate successfully.  The JICS mission to develop character and academic potential through academically rigorous, content-rich educational programs drives her focus as she works with others to ensure it occurs daily.

Michele and her husband, Mike, moved to Colorado Springs in 2009 so they both could serve JICS families.  They have been married since 1988 and have three adult children/spouses – Paige, Matt, and three grandchildren (in northern Kentucky); Joseph and Tiffany – Army Strong; Judy and Scott – Army Strong.  Mrs. Prusinowski enjoys writing, reading, spending time with family and friends, and working with middle school students!  Her Open Door policy welcomes one and all.
