Principal's Message

Hi Litchfield Owls

I am honored to be greeting you as the Principal of Litchfield Elementary School.  With 30 years of experience in education and 8 years in leadership roles, I am deeply committed to fostering a thriving learning environment for our students. Throughout my career, I have focused on building strong relationships within the community, facilitating collaboration among all stakeholders, and making students feel empowered in their education. 

As you know, Litchfield Elementary has a long and rich history that spans over 100 years. Imagine the changes over the decades that have taken place on the LES campus.  When I came here 10 years ago as a teacher, I knew Litchfield was special but I had no idea how much a part of my heart this community would become.  Little by little, through conversations, challenges and celebrations, it has become very clear that the people of Litchfield Elementary past, present and future are unique and united in their dedication to the children we serve.  Whether you are a parent, community member, staff member or student, know that your goals are my goals. 

I believe that learning in any form is magical!  Collaboration among all of you will help create strong foundations for our students and even when they leave us, they will feel that sense of belonging to a community who loves them and wants them to succeed. I am here to serve students and ideally, they will see me as just another person who cares about them and wants them to achieve their goals.  This will be the easiest part for me because I am already 100% in love with these students that I see every day.  I am passionate about public education and excited to work with each of you to continue our tradition of excellence.

While most of you already know me, I am aware that change can be stressful, especially in such an established community grounded in tradition.  Know that  I am committed to a seamless transition of honoring the past while leading us into the future. Thank you in advance for your partnership and know that I could not be more excited and blessed to continue this work with you.
