In partnership with Pikes Peak United Way and Americorps, we are pleased to announce Chris Prindle will be joining the Children’s Literacy Center as a VISTA (Volunteer in service to America). Chris will be responsible for building capacity and expanding CLC’s impact across the Front Range by increasing volunteer and student engagement.
When Chris Prindle was six, her grandparents took her to a wild horse sanctuary. Upon seeing the painted Dakota stallions running across the Black Hills of South Dakota, Chris decided she wanted to become one of “those” when she grew up. Since then, Chris has instead developed a deep passion for teaching children to read. She is thrilled to be joining the Children’s Literacy Center team!
Chris earned her B.A. in English Literature and Education from Azusa Pacific University. She went on to the University of Colorado in Denver to earn a Special Education teaching license. She recently completed a Masters of Arts in Teaching degree and Reading Specialist credential through Colorado College. Chris has five years of intervention experience in both special education and general education settings. She is also a current board member for the Rocky Mountain ALTA chapter. Chris is an enthusiastic educator and advocate for equal access to literacy best practices in Colorado.
