Welcome to Leeton Elementary!  It is an honor and privilege to work in our community helping to grow young minds.  I have had the pleasure of being a member of the Leeton R-X staff for 15 years, serving as a classroom teacher, Special Education Director and now as the Elementary Principal.  I believe we have the most amazing students and staff and enjoy seeing what is in store each day at Leeton Elementary.


The staff at Leeton Elementary are committed to working with students individually, helping them to grow not only as learners, but as a person.  We believe in building a positive learning environment, which includes open communication among staff and teachers as well as instilling a sense of pride within our students.  We consistently seek opportunities to better ourselves in order to impact students’ success.


I encourage each Leeton Elementary family to participate actively in their child’s education.  We simply can’t do it without you.  Please feel free to contact your child’s teacher or myself if there is anything we can do to help your child succeed.  


Here’s to another amazing year at LES!
