Adria Tate
Dean of Instruction




I am a native Californian, but Colorado is now home to me, my husband, Scott, and our son, Adam. I have worked in education for 25 years, and each year gets better and better. This is my 8th year in DPS, but the last two years, 2018 and 2019, I spent living, working and serving in Uganda, Africa. There, I was the Principal of a Ugandan secondary school. I am so grateful for the opportunity to be working as the Dean of Instruction at Thomas Jefferson High School!
