Dear Students and Families of the East St. John Elementary Community,
Welcome to East St. John Elementary School! At our school we are committed to ensuring that everyone is treated with respect and that students reach deep levels of profound learning through relevant, engaging learning experiences. Our staff of extraordinary teachers, paraprofessionals, and office personnel arrive each day prepared to give their best to our students, families and school.
I am honored to be part of this Bobcat community! I firmly believe we are on a journey of continual learning and must keep ourselves open to the academic and life lessons that are regularly presented to us. Additionally, I am firmly committed to my mission as an educator of helping each person reach deeply towards their own personal best. I approach each school year with refreshed energy and a commitment to serve the children of our community.
With experience as a teacher and administrator at the elementary, middle and high school levels, I feel extremely fortunate to have witnessed the transitions students make in their educational journeys.
Additionally, I have three children of my own with many different needs, so I also fully understand from a parent perspective the developmental path of our children. The depth and range of these experiences are gifts that have broadened my own understanding of how we must customize learning, in order for our children to become caring, productive and self-sufficient citizens.
At East St. John Elementary, our school motto is as follows: “Be the Best.”
