Thompson School District is pleased to announce that it has named Brandy Grieves as the new principal at Turner Middle School in Berthoud, effective July 1. She will be filling the position vacated by Derrick Martin, who is departing the district.
Since 2013, Ms. Grieves has served as the principal at Groveport Madison Middle School North in Columbus, Ohio. Prior to that appointment, she served as the assistant principal of Groveport Madison High School in Groveport, Ohio.

She began her instructional career at Valley High School in Las Vegas, Nevada, teaching a variety of English classes.
“I am extremely excited to start this next adventure and feel humbled to be the next leader for Turner Middle School,” Ms. Grieves said. “I can’t wait to meet the staff and students and start working with the community. I am looking forward to getting to know the teachers and staff better in order to ensure that we are providing the best educational opportunities for our students. In my eyes, a successful school is one that provides a healthy and safe environment for all students and staff, quality instruction for each student and a positive working relationship among students, staff, parents and the community being served.”
Ms. Grieves earned a Bachelor of Arts in English with a minor in Spanish from Colorado State University and has also earned a master’s degree in Educational Leadership from Nova Southeastern University in Las Vegas.
