A message from our Assistant Principal...

 

As Spring Lake Magnet’s Assistant Principal, I feel honored to have the privilege of working closely with such an outstanding and dedicated school community! I am committed to continuing the success of every child, both academically and socially, through the Innocent Classroom philosophy - where each child's good is discovered, cherished and protected.  Our continued partnership with Minnesota Humanities shows a strong correlation between strong relationships and student success.  I encourage you to watch our Innocent Classroom video on our website. 

I would also like to share with you some of my professional background and my philosophy as an administrator. I received both my teaching certificates in regular and special education and Masters in Administration and Supervision from Creighton University. My 20 years of experience in the Omaha Public Schools includes seven years as a sixth grade teacher and three years as Citizenship Facilitator at Belvedere Academy, Assistant Principal at Prairie Wind (2004-05) and 12 years at Spring Lake Magnet Center.  My experiences as both a classroom teacher and administrator have provided me with valuable knowledge and resources to be both an effective instructional and strategic leader as well as a strong advocate for our children's social and academic success.

I invite you to take an active role in your child's education.  It truly takes the village to raise our children.  I look forward to working together with you this year! My door is always open to all of you!
