Meet Your Teachers

Mr. David Goode

This will be my seventh year teaching at PCK and fifteen year teaching overall. I love the students and staff at this high achieving school. I have a Master's degree in educational leadership, a Bachelor's degree in Business, and an AAS degree in Management. I have a secondary teaching certification in Social Studies and also teach part time for Colorado Christian University.

I am an avid sports fan and love Tae Kwon do, where I hold a First Dan Black Belt and am a certified instructor in both TKD and JKD. I am an Apple Award representative for PCK (2018). I am a former police officer and vice principal and I love teaching. My wife is also an educator and my son Lance goes to PCK. WE love it here. I look forward to teaching you about history and current events.

Mrs. Margaret Nelson

Hello! I am so excited to be teaching in the middle school! This is my eighth year at PCK and my 22nd year of teaching overall. I hold a BA in English and Sociology, a Master's in Teaching, and a Specialist degree in Reading. As a result, my career has spanned grades K-12, and now I'm happy to be back in the middle grades. My family consists of my husband, four children, and two dogs, all of whom keep me very busy! My two youngest children graduated from PCK; I feel very lucky to be a part of this school as a parent and as a teacher.

In my time away from school, you can find me reading, knitting, traveling, or shooting at the archery range. If you need to reach me at any time, please send me an email and I will respond as quickly as possible.

I am looking forward to meeting all of you!
