Dear West Elementary Parents, Students, and Community Members,
Welcome back to a new school year! I am very honored to have the opportunity to serve as the Principal at West this year! As I have worked during the summer, I have had the pleasure of meeting West staff members and also some of our students and parents. In speaking with all the wonderful people that I have met, it is very evident how special this school is! I have heard many positive comments about West and I am looking forward to being a part of this great school team!
As we begin the new school year, I would like to take a brief minute to introduce myself to you. Although I am new to West Elementary, I am not new to Sycamore. My family, including my husband Mike, and my 2 boys, Alex and Zack, have lived in Sycamore for 11 years. Prior to beginning my job at West, I have been a middle school math teacher for 12 years and have served as an administrator for the past 13 years at both the middle school and elementary levels in Wisconsin and Illinois. Being selected as an administrator in Sycamore is an honor for me. It is my goal to create a quality educational environment where ALL students have the opportunity to learn and succeed! Please feel free to view my Professional Educator Dedication Statement that is attached. It summarizes my philosophy about being principal at West Elementary.
Please know that I value the opinion of all West Elementary stakeholders. I look forward to experiencing a great year with you and discussing celebrations, suggestions, and concerns you may have as we move through the 2015-2016 school year. Please do not hesitate to contact me at any time!
Enjoy the rest of your summer and I look forward to seeing you on August 20th!
At West School, we are a community where students, staff, and families work collaboratively and creatively to nurture lifelong learners. We implement best practices and hold all individuals to high expectations of character and achievement.
