    Welcome to Martin Luther King, Jr. Elementary School!

    It is our passion here at Martin Luther King, Jr. Elementary to help each of our students succeed. I am passionate about students being empowered to succeed. As Principal, I use all tools available to inspire staff, students and community to work together to promote student achievement and well-being.  

    Our professional and caring staff provides rigorous and relevant learning with a primary focus on relationships. We believe our roles as educators are to guide and nurture the next generation to establish skills necessary to achieve prosperity and fulfillment. We believe every student is capable of rising above any circumstance or situation in order to reach the highest level of their potential. Our school has the motto of “Intelligence, Character, Perseverance...the MLK Way!” and it is a motto that guides everything we do at Martin Luther King, Jr. Elementary.

    This year, I am very much looking forward to providing exceptional educational experiences for our students. I want students to leave Martin Luther King, Jr. Elementary with memories that will last a lifetime! We want our students to LOVE learning and LOVE coming to school. With your help, we can instill life-long values in our students to work hard, exceed expectations, and to appreciate their education. We look forward to another year of learning and growing together as a school community.
