Hello! My name is David Shirley, I am the Assistant Principal for the Denver GOAL High School. It is my desire to support you as you pursue your educational goals. I have been in education for more than 21 years. I was a juvenile probation counselor for 5 years and spent 33 years in the United States Air Force. I enjoy college and pro football. My favorite teams are the Philadelphia Eagles and Ohio State Buckeyes. I enjoy spending time with my wife of 37 years. I love people and love to see our students succeed.

Hello! My name is Joe Gonzales and I am the Dean at the Brighton site. This is my 9th year with GOAL High School. I was previously in the academic coach and social emotional generalist role before becoming a Dean in the Denver Region. My purpose here is to give students every opportunity to succeed with our program and I truly believe we have the best staff in place to make that goal a reality. For fun I love watching anything Disney with my sons Noah and Max, and we especially love rooting for the Broncos, Avalanche, Nuggets and Rockies! 

Have a question or feedback? We’d love to hear from you!
