Ms. Martha Schake • Director of Finance /
 Human Resources

I joined the West Grand Team in June 1989. I enjoy working with our wonderful staff and doing my part of ensuring success for each of our students.

My part of ensuring the success of our West Grand Team is to assist the Superintendent with development and implementation of the District’s annual budget and fiscal services. I also assist the Superintendent with the planning and coordination of human resource services.

I am originally from Kearney Missouri, where I grew up on a farm and graduated from Kearney High School. My husband, Steve, and I moved to Silverthorne Colorado in 1975 and chose to move to Kremmling in 1978. We chose Kremmling because of the small community, good people and a great school system.

We have 2 grown children, who attended West Grand Schools from Kindergarten through 12th Grade. We now have 2 grandchildren attending West Grand Elementary School and West Grand Middle School. We are truly a West Grand Mustang Family!

My hobbies include spending time with my family and friends, cooking, gardening, hiking, improving my golf techniques, traveling and reading.

Ms. Dominique Jones • Administrative Assistant
to the Superintendent & Board of Education

My name is Dominique Jones, and  I am the administrative assistant to the superintendent.  I was born and raised in Kremmling, and still believe this is a great place to raise a family.  I enjoy all aspects of working at West Grand School District.  We have an amazing staff, and the students are the highlight of my workday. Outside of work I enjoy dancing, live theatre, reading, baking, walking and hiking, and being outside, (especially in summer).  My favorite things are laughing, and spending time with my family!!
