Meet the Principal

Principal's Message

 Hello! Welcome to the Northeast Elementary website! I am pleased to welcome you back to the 2020-21 school year! I would like to extend a special welcome to all of the new families joining Northeast this year and welcome back all of our returning families as well! I am honored to be your new principal. Our goal at Northeast is to work TOGETHER to provide our students with a rich learning environment. My vision and philosophy are to ALWAYS put kids first! My belief is that as educators, we need to discover how each child learns in order to differentiate our instruction to support diverse learning styles. In a collaborative effort, we want children to thrive in all ways possible. My hope is that all children will LOVE school as we nurture a learning environment that is positive, safe, warm, caring, as well as a fun place to learn and grow.   
This year, more than ever, it is important that we work together to work through the challenges we are all facing. Although this year looks different than any other year, we are dedicated to providing your children with a memorable, interactive, and engaging learning experience. We will be highlighting our “Shining Star” students each month with the hope of motivating and engaging our at-home learners.  In school, we motivate with a positive message each day.  All students are keeping Gratitude journals where they write about what they are most grateful for.  They say a grateful heart is the foundation for faith, courage, happiness, love and general well-being.  I am extremely grateful for our students and our school community!
