Welcome Back!

2022-2023 School Year

Welcome Back Madison Families!

I hope your summer days have been filled with family, friends, relaxation, reflection and all your favorite activities. I am excited to be a part of the Madison community this year and I am looking forward to meeting you and your student(s) at Goal Setting Conferences August 31st or September 6th!

A little about me! I am the proud mother of four awesome children and spent last weekend moving my son into his freshman dorm (teary eyed)...life changes, but it does it so beautifully! My daughter Charley is a high school freshman (this happened way to fast!) and my daughter Asjha just accepted her first teaching position in Spring Lake Park! My son Jerrod and his wife live in Paynesville, MN where he works for Leadstone Companies.

I have been blessed to be an educator for 26 years! I have experience in Elementary, Middle, High School and Alternative School settings. I have had the pleasure to serve students and families as an English Language Coordinator, High School Counselor, Middle School Dean of Students, High School Assistant Principal, Elementary Assistant Principal/Principal and Cross Country Coach ...and I loved every minute of it!

I am truly honored to be leading an inspiring community of parents and scholars! We know that our children deserve educators that commit to innovation, collaboration, a growth mindset and a willingness to examine and embrace diverse perspectives and experiences. This is how parents and educators can ensure the highest quality education for our future. I am looking forward to a fantastic year with you!

Sincerely,

Principal Estrada
