Dear La Monte Elementary Family:

Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year at La Monte Elementary School!  I am excited and honored to be a part of the La Monte School family and look forward to a year full of learning, achievement, and positive changes.  Over the past couple of months, I have had the opportunity to learn about La Monte School from staff, students, parents and community members.  I am humbled by the shared philosophy, which has guided my own leadership: A commitment in putting students first!  A little bit about me: I have been serving in education for the past twelve years and my educational experience spans grades Kindergarten through 9th grade with specific concentration in both literacy and mathematics.  My administrative experience has been shaped by three years of successful leadership as the K-12 Principal in the Chilhowee R-IV School District.  I am thrilled to bring my skills as an educational leader to La Monte Elementary School and to work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child’s academic success.

I look forward to learning with you and from you this school year.  The faculty and staff at La Monte will continue to review and develop the educational program so that it continues to raise the bar for students, academically challenging and engaging each student by linking what they're learning in school to knowledge and experiences that matter most to them. I have been inspired by the strong collaboration and commitment to student learning at La Monte Elementary. Together, we can ensure that we are all learning and growing for our number one priority: Doing what is best for OUR children/students!

It is with a strong commitment that I am joining La Monte Elementary and am looking forward to leading and learning together as a community.  I welcome your input and I encourage you to contact me should you have any questions or suggestions. I thank you in advance for welcoming me as part of your great community.

Yours in education,

Mrs. Jennifer Corson
