GRANBY — Middle Park High School will welcome a new assistant principal this coming fall.

Tim Carlin of Idaho Springs, Colo., brings 11 years experience working as a principal for Colorado Connections Academy, an online school based in the Denver area, offering K-12 curriculum throughout the state. Previously, Carlin worked as assistant principal and director of curriculum instruction at Evergreen High School and as an outdoor education, health and physical education teacher at Rifle High School.

Carlin, who will relocate with his wife and two children, said he looks forward to the job and working in the mountains.

“We’re very excited about the move to Grand County, about its endless outdoor options,” Carlin said. “I’m excited to meet the students and staff at Middle Park; I’ve heard so many good things about them.”

Originally from Philadelphia, Carlin was drawn to Colorado by his interest in the outdoors and the mountain lifestyle.

Principal Scott Eldred said Carlin’s background in outdoor education will be a boon to Middle Park’s Adventure Education program, which provides students with experiential learning while camping, river running and exploring the outdoors.

Carlin replaces current assistant principal Todd Bittner, who has accepted an administrative position at a charter school on the Front Range.

“His connections to the community and students will be missed,” Eldred said.
