Welcome to North Landing Elementary School! We are honored to serve as principal and assistant principal of this wonderful school and be a part of this amazing community.

Our mission as school administration is to always put kids first – every student, every day! It is our belief that all students can learn and it is our job at NLES to meet and support all of their needs. At North Landing Elementary we will continue to grow and discover how each child learns best in order to differentiate our instruction to support all learning styles. We will work as a school to embrace and respect our differences, ensure all students are challenged and that their social, emotional and academic needs are met. We also believe that school should be a place not only to learn but have fun. School should be a positive learning environment that is safe and caring but also a place that fosters a lifelong love of learning. Working closely with North Landing families, students, parents, staff and community members, we are sure the students of NLES will thrive and have the best year ever. There are so many ways to get involved in your child’s education and we welcome you to do so. Keep in contact with your child’s teacher when you have questions or concerns about progress, and feel free to volunteer to participate in class activities and field trips. PTA is another great way to be involved. Other volunteer opportunities will arise throughout the school year. Working together is a sure way to guarantee your child’s success.

We look forward to partnering with you and embarking on an amazing new school year.
