About Us


Dear East Heritage Families, 

Welcome to the 20-21 school year! I am honored to be the Principal of East Heritage and so excited to continue to serve this community.  I am a true believer in the power of parental involvement and the positive impact it has on student achievement. As your child’s first and most important teacher, you play a profound role in the success of your child as a student. I look forward to partnering with you in supporting your child to have a successful year.  

East Heritage Elementary is a very special place where the community comes together in the interest of raising our next generation to be successful, productive citizens. My goal is to continue to work together to create a positive climate where our Explorers will thrive academically, socially, and emotionally. High Standards and expectations for each student in regard to academic performance and responsible citizenship are the foundation of our school. The staff at East Heritage Elementary are committed to providing a safe and intellectually challenging environment that will empower students to become innovative thinkers, creative problem solvers and inspired learners prepared to thrive in the twenty-first century. 

If you would like to discuss any concerns, questions, or ideas about your child’s education I would like you to know that our school administrative team’s door is always open. We encourage you to play an active role in your child’s education by getting involved here on campus. There are many ways to get involved such as joining WATCH DOGS, becoming a member of our School Site Council, or joining our PTO.  Be sure to frequent our website for up to date information. Please follow us on Instagram @ ehexplorers. 

I am excited to have the opportunity to be the principal of this great school and I am looking forward to a fantastic year.
