Jordan/Jackson News You Can Use
Wednesday, October 21, 2020
Welcome Assistant Principal Katie Perreault!
It is with great joy and excitement that I write this letter of introduction as a newly appointed Assistant Principal of the Jordan/Jackson Elementary School.
Most of my professional career has been spent working with elementary, middle and high school students in different capacities. Ten years were spent teaching at both elementary and the high school level. The past two years I held a Co-Leader position at an elementary school in Lawrence Massachusetts. The majority of my education career was spent in Phoenix, Arizona as a teacher, Dean of Students, and Assistant Principal.
My decision to become an administrator came from a strong desire to make a positive impact on an entire school community. I will work diligently with our faculty and staff to carry out the vision and mission of Jordan/Jackson Elementary School. I believe that as a school we play a fundamental role in positioning our students for future success. I am committed to working closely with teachers, staff, parents, and community members to ensure our children achieve their full potential and are prepared for their next phase of education.
I am delighted to be a part of the Jordan/Jackson family.
