Josh Richey Principal of Boltz Middle School
This is my second year as Principal of Boltz and my 5th year here in the building. I couldn’t be more excited to work with the Boltz community daily and I am grateful and appreciative to the families and staff who call Boltz their home school.
I am originally from Wheat Ridge Colorado and graduated from Wheat Ridge High School sometime in the 90s. I graduated from Metro State University in Denver with an undergrad in English Literature and teaching. I have earned a Masters Degree in Special Education, with a Generalist License and an Educational Specialist Degree in Educational Leadership with a Principal License and a Special Education Directors License endorsement. I started my education career teaching 4-5 year old students how to ski directly out of high school. I finished school in Denver and moved to Fort Collins in 2004 working as an English Teacher and Special Education Teacher in a Residential Treatment Center. I transitioned to Fort Collins High School in 2009 and continued there as a Special Education (Integrated Services) teacher until 2013. I then moved on to become a Dean of Students at FCHS until moving to Boltz in the fall of 2018.
In my free time my family and I ski / snowboard, hike and camp. My wife and I have one daughter who is in elementary school, 2 dogs and some chickens.
Thank you again for choosing Boltz.
