Dear Diamond Canyon Community, 

My name is Samantha Colangelo and I am honored to be the Assistant Principal at Diamond Canyon School (Go Coyotes) for the 2021-2022 school year! I would like to take the opportunity to tell you a little bit about me as we enter a new school year. 

I was born and raised in the midwest, Springfield, Missouri. I attended the University of Arizona and that is where I met my husband, Dave. We have a son, Jack, who is 2 years old. I enjoy family time, running, hot yoga, and reading.

Professionally, I have my Bachelors of Arts in Early Childhood Education and a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from Grand Canyon University. This 2021-2022 school year will be my 11th year in education. I was a K-2 classroom teacher for 6 years, served as a K-8 Instructional coach for 3 years, and last year was a Dean of Students for DVUSD. My core foundation is that I believe ALL students have unique strengths and qualities that will elicit student success academically, socially, and emotionally. Additionally, I am passionate about being an advocate for families and pursuing learning opportunities to continue my educational learning. 

Please know that I am here for you and will work hard to advocate for you and your child(ren). Please feel free to contact me at the information below with any questions, comments, or concerns.

I thank you in advance for your dedication, time, and efforts for your child(ren) in his or her upcoming learning endeavors. 

I look forward to learning and working together to ensure the success of our Diamond Canyon students for the 2021-2022 school year! 


Best Wishes,

Samantha Colangelo, M. Ed.

Assistant Principal
