A District 60 product who began his career as a music teacher, Mr. Dehn has served as principal of Beulah Heights Elementary School for the past six years. His love of working with children began early in life and set the course for his future. “I worked with the YMCA’s youth program and always really enjoyed that aspect,” he said. “But I don’t know that I really thought about it as a career until later into college.”
A proud Pueblo native and product of District 60 – “Go Wildcats” – Principal Cura attended Metropolitan State College in Denver with a goal of eventually becoming a pharmacist.

A proud graduate of East High School who has spent the entirety of her 30-year educational career in the district, Principal Smith is, after a 14-year stint leading the Rattlers, retiring at the end of the school year. “I have loved being a teacher since the day I started and have been blessed to be the Principal of Belmont all these years,” she said. “I am forever grateful for all the wonderful students, colleagues, and families who have touched my heart and been a part of my journey as an educator.”
