Royal Oaks Elementary-Principal
I have been a principal for 20 years,12 years in MN and the rest in IA. I was an elementary teacher for 20.5 years in IA before that. I am very interested in professional development, closing the achievement gap, PreK education, literacy and math, and continuing to learn how I can be the most effective principal possible.
