Principal's Message


Dear Loon Lake Elementary Families,

It is with great pride that I write this letter as principal of Loon Lake Elementary School.  I look forward to continue getting to know the Loon Lake Community and meet our new families as we move into the new school year.

Let me tell you a bit about myself. After high school I attended Western Michigan University, never doubting that I wanted to be anything other than an educator. I went on to get my Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership in 2007.  In 2001, I began my teaching career with Clarenceville Public Schools as both a middle school science teacher and also a second grade teacher. In 2003, I was very fortunate to be hired by Livonia Public Schools.  Throughout my career in Livonia, I was a classroom teacher, teaching second through sixth grades and an academic interventionist.  In 2015, I stepped into an administrator role as the Assistant Principal of Riley Upper Elementary School. I currently reside in South Lyon with my husband and our three children.

When it comes to your child, I want you to know that my number one priority is student safety.  As a parent myself, I know how important it is to know that the environment you send your child to on a daily basis is safe.  I also want you to know that your student’s success is a top priority of mine.  I firmly believe that every child can be successful at school and will work to help your child achieve his/her highest potential. 

That old saying, “It takes a village to raise a child” is so true.  I invite you to work with me to help your child learn and grow throughout his/her time here at Loon Lake Elementary School.  Please do not hesitate to stop in and speak with me.  I want your child to be successful, I want you to have the tools you need to help your child do his/her best, and I want you and your child to feel valued and appreciated as members of the Loon Lake community.  I am very proud to be a part of Loon Lake Elementary School and I hope you are, too!

I look forward to getting to know you and working with you and your child. Please feel free to see me about anything.
