Jaquita Hurst

Assistant Principal



It is an honor and privilege to be the new Assistant Principal at Brown International Academy. I’m looking forward to getting to know all of the children here. After completing my teaching license and M.A in Early Childhood Education at the University of Colorado, I began my career with DPS in 2010. Some years later, I earned my administrative license and Ed.S degree, also from the University of Colorado.

I have served DPS students in many regions as a teacher, team specialist, senior team lead, and now as an administrator. In each of these roles, my passion for ensuring equity for all children guides my work.

When not at Brown International, you’ll find me with my son Jasper and husband Erik, biking around Denver, or hiking many paths our great state has to offer. Our most endured pleasure is to travel. I enjoy unwinding daily with a good book and cooking with Jasper.
