Hiawatha Principal

I grew up in Virginia Beach, Virginia where my parents still live.

My husband and I live in Burlington with our son. We love the water, cooking great meals with family and friends, and being outdoors. 

I told my mother I wanted to be a teacher for the first time when I was five years old.
 
All my life I have had a true love for learning, helping others, and children. Becoming the principal of Hiawatha has been a true gift. I am beyond lucky to be part of an amazing community of teachers, students and families.

Hello,  I'm Michelle!  I'm the new Principal's Administrative Assistant here at Hiawatha.  

I love spending time with my family.  Our daughter is currently teaching English in an elementary school in Takasaki Japan.  We're looking forward to visiting her there in May.  Our son is a sophomore at UMaine in Orono studying Marine Biology and playing rugby.

I love a good book, watching a movie, listening to music, going for walks and travel.  I volunteer at the Flynn to enjoy my love of theater!

I'm so excited to be a part of this wonderful school and community!  I'm looking forward to helping you!
