Nilka Kentish

Hey there Huskies! Hello Hamilton community! What’s up SE Denver! I am so thrilled to be a part of the great team of leaders that make up the Hamilton Community. I am looking forward to another amazing year at Hamilton. Especially working with our scholars and promoting change. We are officially an IB school. What a great milestone. I want to introduce myself and my family, I am a big believer in Family and 99 percent of the time if I’m there my family is there with me. I am a mother of 4 kids: 2 middle schoolers Jiavana and Jonathan and my little bits Kai and Ivory. I am the director of Gold Rush dance team partner with DPS. I am currently attending MSU, working on my Bachelors degree. I am very motivated to be a part of the amazing levels of work that is done by the Hamilton Team. My passion is family and I believe families have a huge part to play in the schools. I am here to be any help and voice of our community. I hope to be an asset to our continued journey. Thanks for joining us and I look forward to meeting everyone.

My name is Alia Gonzales and my only son is a 7th grader here at Hamilton. I was part of the CSC in our elementary school and have been an active member of the PTSA during his 6th-grade year. I have enjoyed being involved in supporting the Hamilton community and celebrating the hard work of the students. Professionally, I work in Library Administration with the City of Aurora. This role has allowed me to work with my passion for communities as well as truly value education and literacy. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Human Services with a Specialization in Marketing which has allowed me to develop what it means to work with the community in the most effective way possible.  In my free time I enjoy reading, crochet, puzzles, and true crime documentaries.

I have two students at Hamilton, in 7th & 8th grade.  I have been actively involved and volunteering at Hamilton since fall 2018, having served on the Hamilton CSC for 2 years and as PTSA secretary since fall 2019.  I’ve also volunteered with the drama productions and at sporting events. My professional background includes working in the nonprofit and public sector on sustainability, environmental education, teaching English as a Second Language, as well as general administrative work.

I am a mom of two kids who have attended Bradley elementary. I have a 6th grader starting at Hamilton in fall 2020. I’m a small business owner, wellness coach, former DPS teacher and staff developer. I have helped support and volunteer at PTO events at Bradley as well  as volunteered within the classroom for various programs.

Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. WE are the ones that WE have been waiting for. WE are the ones WE seek.
