Welcome to the 2016-17 school year! As a new principal to GMES, it is exciting to see the pride in our schools and community shining throughout Rochester. The staff at GMES is excited to be welcoming back our returning students and meeting new ones! I am thrilled to be part of such a strong learning team at Grand Mound Elementary School.
As a classroom teacher of 25 years, I have been fortunate to work with students in all grades, preschool through 5th. I have also managed Title 1/LAP intervention programs which assist students who need extra assistance in reading, writing, or mathematics. I worked several years with students who received individual education plans (IEPs) because they had specific academic or social needs that couldn’t be met within the general classroom or through academic intervention programs. Now as a principal at GMES, I am excited to use that experience to best support this staff in serving the students and community of Rochester.
Our primary goal at GMES is to assist your child’s growth both academically and socially. I invite you to take some time to explore the GMES website and district website to familiarize yourself with all of the resources available at GMES as well as throughout the Rochester School District. Our website has many helpful links to support your child’s learning. If you need assistance with accessing any of this information or have questions at any time, please do not hesitate to email or call for assistance. We are here to help you!
Welcome to the beginning of a great year at GMES!
