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.  She earned a Master of Arts in Curriculum and Instruction from PCC which she uses to support 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 build a bridge so that all students have access to an excellent education.  She fully supports the JICS mission to develop character and academic potential through academically rigorous, content-rich educational programs and works with teachers to ensure it happens.

Michele and her husband, Mike, moved to Colorado Springs in 2009 where they both could serve James Irwin Charter School 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 – Colorado Springs.  Mrs. Prusinowski enjoys writing, reading, spending time with family and friends, and working with middle school students!
