Principal's Message

Principal Croymans and Family
 Everyone who teaches is “called” to education in some way and at some time. We all get that “calling”. Some get it early in life and others, like myself, get it when we least expect. As a young child, I was taught the importance of education. My mother loved to learn and passed her love of learning on to me. As I grew older, I realized that my passion for learning went deeper -- I also had a passion to work with children!
My personal belief is that all students are capable of being learners and learning information. Learning is a skill that we all possess. However, my belief is that learning may look different for every individual and it is our responsibility to identify and address the cognitive learning style of each student. A successful educator will prepare lessons that are beneficial to every student. Educators plant seeds of “cool” knowledge into their students’ lives each and every day. Some seeds need extra watering and need special attention. A successful educator can and will identify those needs and create fun and innovative ways to provide support and information to those students.
Principal Jennifer Croymans
