I am excited to serve as principal on the campus where I learned to teach alongside the best teachers in the world. I am thankful to my mentor, Mrs. Sandra Sherman, for her dedication and faithfulness to China Elementary for over five decades. She leaves quite a legacy and big footprints to fill. It is my heartfelt desire to ensure that China Elementary continue to provide its best for our students, their parents, and our wonderful staff. I appreciate your ongoing support and trust
as we work with your children.
It is our goal at CE to help our students become
self-disciplined learners with a passion for lifelong learning. China Elementary disciplinary procedures involve helping our students
identify unproductive behaviors, alternate solutions, and ways to
restore and maintain good relationships. Students who visit the office
for discipline referrals are able to verbalize what they did wrong, what
to try the next time, and to hear that we believe they will make better
choices in the future. We are so proud of our little Hawks and who they are becoming! I am excited that Jennifer Lyons is joining our staff as assistant principal. She brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to our campus. I encourage you to come by and meet her.
check my "Parent's Corner" regularly for resources that can
help you help your child. I will continue to post new articles about how you can help your child in many areas of his/her development.
