About Mr. McGill

I was born in Denver, Colorado. I grew up in Colorado Springs to parents who were both educators with my dad teaching for 20+ years at Explorer Elementary as a PE Teacher and my mother being an assistant principal at Pine Creek and Air Academy and finally a Principal at Air Academy for the last 5 years of her career. Ian, my younger brother works in business and has a wonderful wife and twin daughters(Wren and Harper). My sister Mackenzie works at a veterinary clinic and is just recently engaged. 
 
I met my best friend and wife Astrid while at Liberty high school in the Springs. She has been teaching PE at our alma mater for the past 11 years. She is also an accomplished softball coach, having won coach of the year in 2016. She stepped down as head coach this past year to focus on our two incredible sons, Lochlan(7) and Quinn(2). Our boys keep us entertained all the time and are the greatest gifts in our lives. 
 
It's an honor to serve as assistant principal and athletic director at Calhan. It's my second year in this position after spending the previous ten at Liberty High School as a Special Education Teacher. There is no better place than Calhan school district and while we are dealing with some truly extraordinary situations this year, our mindset is that there are NO EXCUSES. Our students and staff will exhibit GRIT and emerge from this time better than ever with a new appreciation for the opportunities we are given.
