Welcome To Tsinaabaas Habitiin Elementary

Hello Parents and Guardians,

It is with great pride and excitement to introduce myself as the incoming principal of Tsinaabaas Habitiin Elementary School. It is truly an honor to become a part of the Tsinaabaas Habitiin family. I come to you with 17 years of experience as an educator; however, I come from a family of educators, so I have been around this profession all my life. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with such a rich tradition of culture and education! I am excited and eager to bring my skills as an educational leader to Tsinaabaas Habitiin Elementary School and work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child’s success.

Along with the teachers and staff, I will work hard to continue the legacy of success established by those educators before me by building strong relationships with parents, students, and community partners. We will focus on the use of data to drive instruction and to provide consistent implementation of the curriculum in a rigorous manner so that we can continue to increase all student achievement.

As your Principal, I believe my main responsibility is to put our teachers in the best possible position to succeed, as they will in turn put our children in the best possible position to succeed. This attitude enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun, and nurturing environment.

I look forward to working with you as a team to help each student at Tsinaabaas Habitiin meet their goals and have a successful school year!
