It is an honor and privilege to be the new principal at Jefferson Elementary School. I am so proud to be apart of the Jefferson community. Jefferson Elementary School is an outstanding school because of our exceptional staff, dedicated to students and Jefferson families. In Winona Area Public Schools we focus on our 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.”
To meet our mission and vision statements we must work together with our parents and Winona community. We believe building positive relationships will support our Jefferson students in a strong educational foundation. We have high academic and personal expectations for our students and staff. Our staff seeks to improve in their craft to support the individual needs of Jefferson students. We appreciate parental and community support in our mission and vision. Partnering in this educational journey is key to Jefferson's student and staff success.
I will be starting my third year in Winona Area Public Schools and my 27th year in education. I have teaching experiences at many elementary grade levels and have been in elementary school administration over the past 16 years. My husband, Todd and I moved to Winona from Omaha, Nebraska two years ago. I enjoying running, reading and spending time with friends and family in my free time.
I am looking forward to my tenure as principal at Jefferson Elementary School. Please reach out to me with any questions or concerns over the school year. I cannot wait to build on the amazing Jefferson traditions and positive, welcoming culture.
Mrs. Andrea Eisner
