Dr. Karen Coleman, Principal

I have been the proud principal of Boulder Creek Elementary since we opened in 2000.  I am originally from Texas but am a product of the Gilbert School District as I graduated from Gilbert High School - go Tigers!  I graduated from Arizona State University with a Bachelors in Elementary Education, have a Masters in Educational Administration from the University of Texas at San Antonio, and received my doctorate from Arizona State University in Educational Administration.
I am the proud mom of one daughter, Melissa who is also the product of Gilbert Public schools, she graduated from Highland High School - go Hawks!  She was also a Sun Devil and graduated from Arizona State with a degree in business.  I am an active member of the National Association of Elementary School Principals and Arizona School Administrators. I was recently honored by the National Association of Elementary School Principals with the National Distinguished Principal Award. I have seen so many changes and growth through the years that keeps the position of the principal exciting. I love serving as the principal of Boulder Creek Elementary because of the relationships I've established through the years with students, staff, and parents.
