Beel, Cathy

Cathy Beel

Educational Assistant

Office: 505.243.1957, Ext. 103

Cathy was born in Albuquerque. She moved to San Francisco after high school. She attended San Francisco City College where she completed the dental technician program. Cathy also attended Diablo Valley College in the east bay where she received her associates degree.

Cathy has worked as a dental technician but found this career too isolating. She later found a new career in the academic field; at Cal State she worked with the admission and testing departments.

After decades of living in the San Francisco bay area she welcomed the move back to Albuquerque to be close to family. She has had the opportunity of working at the courts as a bailiff and most recently working with students at the University of New Mexico.

In her spare time she serves as a board member at her neighborhood association. She also volunteers at her church and helps children learn to read.

She enjoys being with family, taking walks along the Bosque and Sandia mountains, attending community events, and taking road trips to other places in our beautiful Land of Enchantment!

Frampton, Daniel

Daniel Frampton

Social Worker

Office: 505.243.1957, Ext. 600

My name is Daniel Frampton and I go by Dan, or Mr. Frampton.  I’ve been an activist and an organizer for 30 years; and have worked on issues ranging from students’ rights while in college back in Pennsylvania to issues with homeless veterans here in Albuquerque.  I’ve been a school social worker for six years and have worked with at-risk youth for almost 20 years. 

My background leads me to think in a systems-perspective.  I believe it’s important to look for the connections between things.  Helping students reach their full potential in school is the central focus of my job.  My responsibilities include supporting students who receive special education services, as needed, helping students improve attendance and working on the student assistance team (SAT). 

I also believe in a strength-based and academically-centered model.  While some accommodations for students are a necessity, I believe all students have strengths they may not even realize that can help them in school.  My goal is to help students and others recognize the strength of each student and then build on those strengths. 

Hite-Pope, Kim

Dr. Kim Hite-Pope

SPED Director

Office: 505.243.1957, Ext. 104

       Dr. Kim Hite-Pope was born in Lansing, Michigan. During high school she attended Lansing Community College as a dual credit student, long before being a dual credit student was in vogue. Upon graduation from high school, she attended Michigan State University to study pre-med. In her junior year, she applied to the University of Alaska and was accepted to the WAMI program, a four-state program involving: Washington, Alaska, Montana, and Idaho, which supported pre-med and medical students. With receiving entrance to this program, she then moved to Fairbanks, Alaska to attend the University of Alaska.

      Dr. Hite-Pope began training as a goldsmith to make gold nugget jewelry. In learning this skill she become a marketing agent for a wholesale jewelry company. This led to becoming the owner/operator of an open-pit gold mining company, which began a change in her career path.

      Having built a successful gold mining and wholesale jewelry business, Dr. Hite-Pope left the world of education to live in the wilderness of Alaska. For about seven years she lived in several Native American villages in very remote areas of Alaska.

       A fall in the price of gold forced a move back to Fairbanks. At this time Dr. Hite-Pope returned to college and changed her degree program to business management. She married and had two daughters and then moved to a ranch in New Mexico.

        While attending college online Dr. Hite-Pope worked as a special education teacher`s assistant thus beginning her career in education. While working full time she finished a business degree, and then obtained a Master’s in Education and became a licensed special education teacher. In 2017 she completed her Doctorate in Educational Leadership.

        Dr. Hite-Pope found that her prior knowledge and skills learned from owning a gold mining business and living remotely helped provide her with a unique perspective. Living and working with a diverse population taught her a high-level of acceptance and a willingness to work with others to reach a common goal.
