Principal Page

I am very proud to be the Principal of Meiklejohn Elementary!  As I transition from the Assistant Principal role to the Principal role there is much to be proud of within our school.  Meiklejohn is truly one of the best schools in Jefferson County.  The award winning staff is experienced and knowledgeable, the families and community support our school in various ways, and the students are the best!


Meiklejohn Elementary has a proud history of excellence as we have high expectations for all students in academics, behavior, and respect to others.  Meiklejohn is a community of learners engaging in opportunities for growth as critical and creative thinkers.  We value relationships, teamwork, personal achievement, and a safe and supportive learning environment.  


Parent input and participation is valued at Meiklejohn Elementary.  We have a very active PTA that is involved in many school-wide activities and fundraising.  Our Accountability Committee meets regularly and is one of the major decision making bodies at Meiklejohn.  Each school year, we have a Back to School Night to welcome our families, Curriculum Night to help families understand their student's academic year, and Family/Teacher Conferences to keep parents informed of their child’s progress.  We also have an amazing Fall Carnival to support togetherness and a Parent University to involve our parents in our school learnings and growth.  Our staff is eager to work with families for the benefit of their students.  


My experience includes being a middle school teacher, elementary and middle school assistant principal, and will be heading into my fifth year as an elementary Principal.  I believe all students can learn at a high level and it is our role to support their social, emotional, and academic well-being.  I appreciate the whole-child aspects of our work and will support students in reaching their full potential.  


I promise your child will be treated with respect and will be a valued member of our Meiklejohn community.  I am committed to helping all children succeed and will support each child’s journey.  I look forward to our time together and appreciate your support.
