Greetings! It is with great pride and excitement that I greet you as the new principal of Grolee Elementary. This school has a rich history as being one of the premier schools of St. Landry Parish. This was the result of hard work, dedication, and collaboration of the students, staff, parents, and community. My ultimate goal is to restore this status of the school.
I’ve had the wonderful opportunity to work as an educator at the elementary level for the last 9 years. 5 of those years were spent at Southwest Elementary as a 4th grade Math/Science/Social Studies teacher and Administrative Assistant. For the last 4 years, I served as the Assistant Principal at Green T. Lindon Elementary in Youngsville, LA. During this time, I was presented the opportunity to grow as an educator, leader, and individual.
As your Instructional Leader, I am excited for the opportunity to create an environment that where the students will receive a high quality education. I look forward to building positive relationships with the stakeholders of our great school. I firmly believe in the power of relationships. Without a strong, positive relationship, the journey to greatness will be tough. Open communication will be a major contributor to the relationship building process.
Keep in mind that “WE” are a team. Every stakeholder must be involved in this process. I urge all parents to take an active role in the educational process. Together, we can make a difference!
Again, I am so excited to be a part of the Grolee Elementary Family. I anticipate a very successful school year and look forward to working with all of you.
