Steven Watkins has worked with youth for over 15 years, including the last 10 years as an educator. He spent the past four years working at Kinard Middle School in Poudre School District as a science teacher and department leader. He is excited to become an Eagle and join the rich traditions embedded in Wellington Middle School. Some of his most proud moments in education have included traveling with kids to Costa Rica, leading student teachers as a seminar instructor for CSU, and experiencing those one-of-a-kind moments where kids feel connected, engaged and make huge leaps. In his free time, Steven enjoys fishing, hiking, camping, cooking, and spending time with his wife, Katie, and two daughters Emmaline (5) and Esmae (3). Steven is excited to be a part of the Wellington team and is ready to hit the ground running!
