I am honored to be working with the amazing staff, students, and parents of Woodland.  We absolutely love our school and our Woodland pride certainly shows.  Our curriculum aligns with the Minnesota state standards and is designed to provide students the educational advantages they will need to be successful in the 21st century.  Our beautiful setting provides unique outdoor experiences such as the school garden, walking/snowshoeing the trails, using the outdoor classroom, and large open playground areas.

The staff at Woodland are passionate and dedicated to a comprehensive learning experience that grows each student in their learning and as well as becoming a contributing, positive citizen in our school and community.  We are committed to providing world-class learning opportunities embracing a personalized and responsive approach to reach student needs.  Data is used on a consistent basis to drive decisions as we seek to continually improve.

Our school adheres to a Code of Conduct to establish a safe, comfortable learning environment.  Students, staff, parents, and community members dedicate themselves to the following standards:

·         Respect

·         Honesty

·         Kindness

·         Responsibility

·         Fairness

I believe in partnering with the school community and parents to develop programming that focuses on student growth and success.  It is through these positive relationships that we can capitalize on each child’s academic and social potential.  Working together, I know it will be a fabulous school year!
