Principal Donnell Potter

  • our principal Welcome to Jordahl Elementary School! Home of the Bobcats! I am excited to be here at Jordahl. The 2018-2019 school year is going to be a fantastic year as we continue the successfull traditions that Jordahl has established over the years. I am happy and excited to be a part of that tradition.


    Prior to being at Jordahl, I was an Assistant Principal in Douglas County at Castle Rock Elementary School for the 2013-2014 school year. Prior to that, I worked in Colorado Springs School District 11 from 2005-2013 in various roles. My career started in San Diego, CA for the 2004-2005 school year.

    San Diego is where my wife and I grew up. We moved to Colorado Springs in 2005 and have loved it here as we enjoy the climate because it allows us to do things outdoors in the spring, summer, and fall like fish and hike as well as proivde us with the cold of winter and snow, which we didn't get in San Diego!

    My wife and I have 4 children (1 boy, 3 girls): Bretton who is 12; Allison who is 9; Brooklyn who is 7, and Peyton who is 4. We are pretty active as my my kids participate in many activities including lacrosse, soccer, and swimming.  

    Again, I am looking forward to this school year and meeting all of the students and families. If there ever is a need to contact me, please feel free via e-mail (dpotter@ffc8.org), phone (719-382-1406), or come by the office.
