Principal's Corner

Principal's Letter 2016-2017


Welcome to the Steinhatchee School website. As Principal at Steinhatchee School, I am thrilled to be working for you and with you. The plan for this year is that we will promote a family atmosphere, promote an academic plan to meet the needs of all of our students, promote a safe environment and promote a strong community connection. Academics will be a priority but we do want every child to feel comfortable and safe while at school.


To tell you a little about me, I began my teaching career in Steinhatchee. I taught Kindergarten and First Grade from 1983 to 1990. Those were great years and I have always had a “heart” for the school and community. We have the feel of a private school because of the small number of students. After leaving Steinhatchee and returning to Mayo, I taught Kindergarten and then a K/1 multi-level class (my absolute favorite) for several years. After receiving my master’s degree in Educational Leadership, I was an assistant principal for 2 years and a principal for 13 years. We experienced success academically and we also felt like a family.


Again, I look forward to working with you and feel free to contact me at any time.
