Welcome to another exciting year at Canby Lane Elementary School. I look forward to an academically rewarding year!  

It is my goal as Assistant Principal of Instruction to make sure students are engaged in hands-on rigorous activities. Through these hands on experiences our students will learn to apply common core standards to real life situations.

 Greetings,
 
It is an honor to service the students of Canby Lane Elementary.  I am excited to work with the students, parents, staff and stakeholders in this community.  I  became a counselor because I enjoy making a difference and empowering our young students and I look forward to helping our students overcome some of the barriers with learning.  I have been a Counselor for fifteen years on the middle school level with this being my first year on the elementary level.  I love what I do as a Counselor and I truly believe this is the best job in the world.  I am eager to help our students build effective skills, build on their strengths and help them understand the power that they hold in receiving an education.
