Joe Mehsling - Director
This is Mr. Mehsling's first year at Twin Peaks Charter Academy. Joe is a Colorado native. After high school, he spent six years as an infantryman in the United States Marine Corps. He attended the University of Colorado at Boulder majoring in Political Science and History, graduating Magna Cum Laude. He later obtained his M.A. in Educational Leadership from the University of Northern Colorado. He taught, coached and was the assistant principal at Sunset Middle School and Silver Creek Middle Senior High. He spent 10 years as the principal of Altona Middle School where he and his team received numerous state awards and distinctions such as the John Irwin Award, the Governor's Distinction Award, designated as a School to Watch by the Colorado Association of Middle Level Educators. He was recognized as the Colorado Middle School Principal of the Year in 2012. Second only to good parenting, Joe Mehsling believes public education plays a critical role in developing good citizens with great character. He also fundamentally agrees with Twin Peaks Charter Academy's mission and core philosophies.
When not at work he enjoys spending time with his wife, Mary Katherine, who is also an educator. He is most happy when he is in the great outdoors; hunting, fishing, gardening and beekeeping. And of course, he is a huge Denver Broncos fan! Joe is very excited to be a part of the Twin Peaks Charter Academy's family and looks forward to leading your school into its next phase of excellence.
