Greetings Randle Highlands Community,
It is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the newly appointed Interim Principal of Randle Highlands Elementary School for the 2017-2018 school year.  I possess over 18 years of educational experience spanning grades K-12 with a specific concentration in special education, literacy development, and early enrichment opportunities for children.  My most recent administrative experience has been shaped by five years of successful leadership as a high-school Assistant Principal in Washington, DC.  I am elated to bring my skills as an educational leader to your scholars’ school and to work with you as a partner in education to ensure their educational success.

Along with staff, I will work hard to continue the legacy of success established at Randle Highlands by building strong relationships with parents, students, staff, and community partners.  We will focus on character education initiatives, 21st Century skills, fostering a nurturing safe environment for children, use of data to inform instruction, consistent implementation of newly adopted direct instruction strategies to increase students’ achievement, and providing exciting and challenging enrichment opportunities for all students.

I anticipate a most successful year as my team and I support the academic, social, and emotional growth of your scholar here at Randle Highlands Elementary School.

During the course of the year, it is my hope that we will work together to provide the scholars of Randle Highlands ES the best possible opportunities in preparing them to be world class citizens ready to master the challenges of the 21st Century with a solid foundation created here at our school.  As Interim Principal, my door is always open and I welcome your input. Please feel free to stop in or call to make an appointment to discuss any concerns, suggestions, or ideas to help make this the best year yet!

Sincerely,

Kristie Edwards
