Welcome to Woodlawn Elementary!
I am incredibly grateful to be a part of such a special place. It is a beautiful, historical facility with amazing people that make up the Riverhawk family. With great joy and honor, I have the privilege of serving as Woodlawn Elementary's building principal. My goals parallel Woodlawn Elementary and Lawrence Public Schools: Equity, Excellence, and Engagement. Having grown up in Northeast Iowa and serving in the United States Military, I believe in a shared leadership model where everyone has a role in creating, maintaining, and celebrating our successes.
Woodlawn has a proud history of both social and academic achievement. In 2010, Woodlawn was honored as a National Blue Ribbon School for our commitment to achievement and ensuring that students learn and succeed. This recognition was achieved through the hard work of our outstanding students, an expert and dedicated staff of caring professionals, active and involved parents, and a supportive community. This award acknowledged our continued focus on meeting the needs of our student population and providing them with rigorous, standards-based instruction while recognizing students' individual needs. As a learning community, we are committed to working hand-in-hand toward the success of all our children.
My personal goal is to respect and continue the valued traditions and procedures of the Riverhawks, a commitment to putting our Riverhawk students first!
I look forward to a great school year! Don't hesitate to contact me at 785-832-5920 or firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns.
