Welcome to Clarence Center

Message from your Principal:
It is a true privilege to serve as the principal of Clarence Center Elementary. A school full of rich traditions, talented students, supportive families, and a hardworking staff. My work as a leader is built on collaboration, communication, teamwork, and building those up around me. Here are some facts about me:

Favorite part of the school day: Morning arrival welcoming students and parents at drop off. I curate playlists of music to dance and sing with our morning staff stationed outdoors. I enjoy seeing students and parents smiling faces when they pull up and creating an atmosphere of excitement to start school each day. 

Best part of being a Principal: Creating opportunities for students and staff to feel valued and feel a strong sense of belonging. For students, this includes our Cheetah Chants in Morning Program, our hand signal of showing CCE love, our ambassador program and so much more. For adults, this includes how I thoughtfully plan their professional development experiences around relevant themes. This 2023-2024 school year our theme is CONNECTIONS. Our teachers have experienced their very own Connection Cafe in September, a Connection Competition in December full of team-based games, and culture-building activities throughout the entire year such as, Do you have a peppermint in your pocket?
