My name is Amy Odell and am truly honored to be the principal of Polaris Elementary School. The 2019-2020 school marks my eighteenth year in education and my first year at Polaris. I have experience as an elementary and middle school teacher, gifted education teacher, instructional and leadership coach, assistant principal and principal. Supporting students in their academic and social emotional development is my passion and I am looking forward to an exciting and wonderful year working in support of Polaris students, families and staff members.
I am originally from Massachusetts, growing up in a small rural town in the Berkshires. My undergraduate work was completed at the University of Richmond (VA), where I obtained degrees in Psychology and Elementary Education. Post-college, I spent a decade in Chicago, IL, during which time I received my Masters in Education from Benedictine University (IL). I moved to Colorado in 2012, spending four years in Colorado Springs and am now embarking on my fourth year in Denver and DPS. When away from the school building, I enjoy spending time with my husband and kids, walking our dog, cooking, skiing and going to concerts.

Hello Polaris families and community. I am so happy to be a part of the Polaris family. 2019/2020 marks my 2nd year working at Polaris and DPS. I grew up in Denver and attended DPS. I graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 2011. I love traveling and would consider myself a foodie. When I am not doing my favorite things, I enjoy relaxing at home with my husband and fur-babies.
