Welcome to the 2018-19 school year!
I am so excited to be part of the Goodview community this year! We are going to have a great year together!
It is an honor to be serving as principal at Goodview Elementary this year. Goodview Elementary has a group of dedicated staff focused on providing an excellent learning environment for all kids. This year we will focus on Winona Area Public Schools’ new district mission, “Expect excellence, grounded in compassion, to meet the needs of all learners.” We have a vision to create, “One community of lifelong learners, engaged in creating our culture, where all are safe, valued and accountable to one another for success.”
It is very important for us to collaborate with all of our families to live out this mission and vision. We welcome all families and encourage them to get involved at Goodview Elementary School. Students will experience excellence when families and schools work together. Building positive relationships will be our goal and our entire staff is excited about working with our families. We look forward to knowing and understanding our students’ individual needs and working hard to meet those needs.
This will be my fourteenth year in Winona Area Public Schools. During this time, I have taught a variety of grade levels and served on multiple committees and curriculum writing teams. This will be my first year as a principal and I could not be more excited about starting this new journey at Goodview!
My family and I are huge Winhawk fans! I am a proud graduate of Winona Senior High School and a Winhawk at heart. My husband is the head football coach for the Winhawk football team and teaches Physical Education at Winona Senior High School. We have two kids, Bryan is an 8th grader and Molly is a 6th grader at Winona Middle School. In my free time, I enjoy being their cheerleader in all they do.
I am looking forward to meeting, and building relationships with families, students, and staff of Goodview Elementary School. This is going to be an incredible year!
