Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year! It is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the new Principal of Carson Elementary. I feel truly blessed to be the instructional leader of such a fantastic school. Carson is a truly special place as our returning Carson families know. If you are new to the Carson community you have found a very special place indeed.
I have lived in Newark nearly my entire life and currently live here with my husband and two sons. I am a Newark graduate and also a graduate of The Ohio State University. Go Bucks! Although this will be my first year as a principal, I have worked in Newark City Schools for 13 years, most recently as the Literacy Coordinator for the district. This year will be my 20thyear as an educator. I am thrilled to work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child’s success.
Along with the staff, I will work hard to foster a safe and nurturing environment along with high expectations for academic success. We will continue to establish strong relationships with parents, students, staff and community partners. We will focus on our character education program, implementing Ohio’s Learning Standards, use of data to inform instruction, and meeting the needs of each individual
I anticipate a most successful year as the Cason Staff and I support the academic, social, and emotional growth of your child. I want Carson to be a place where there are lots of smiles and laughter. It is my hope that we will all work together to provide the students of Carson the best possible opportunities in preparing them to be world class citizens and to reach their highest potential!
As Principal, my door is always open and I welcome your input. Please feel free to stop in or call to make an appointment to discuss any concerns, suggestions, or ideas to help make this the best year yet! I can also be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
