Hello! My name is Kristi Leech, and I’m running to represent District 1 on the Board of Directors for Denver Public Schools. As your Board Member, I will work hard to solve problems within DPS and collaborate with the community to give a voice to all of the diverse members our DPS family. I believe that if we pull together as a community we have the power to make real, sustainable change that will positively impact all DPS students.

As a Registered Nurse, I have worked for fifteen years serving an extremely diverse population of patients. I cherish the opportunity to help people on their healing journey, advocating for patients and working to bridge the gap between their experiences and the expert physicians they rely on.

Since 2007, I’ve lived in District 1. In this time I’ve developed many relationships in and out of schools, and have become well acquainted with the needs of our district. Beyond supporting the needs of my own children, and the students at Asbury Elementary school, I lift my voice as a citizen advocate by testifying at the Colorado State Capitol to help convince legislators to put public education funding at the top of their agenda.



  • A parent of 2 DPS students - in 3rd & 5th grade at Asbury Elementary School.
  • Extremely dedicated and a highly active volunteer at our amazing neighborhood school.
  • NOT satisfied with how DPS has managed OUR taxpayer money! Their priorities don't line up with community needs and wants.
  • NOT tied to the DPS administration in any way that would influence me as a Board member.
  • NOT taking campaign money from people or organizations that don't put students, teachers and communities first.
  • NOT going to stop fighting for better public schools and more funding!!
