It is an honor to serve as the Principal of Michigan Avenue Elementary School and a pleasure to watch the growth in students throughout Osceola County.  I am delighted to be a part of the community and Principal at MAE.  I am proud to share that I join this team of esteemed educators with 25 years of experience in education; 7 years - classroom educator, 1 year - Dean of Students, 8 years - Assistant Principal, and 9 successful years as Principal at Reedy Creek and Michigan Avenue Elementary Schools. 

Michigan Avenue Elementary is dedicated to our vision: Michigan Avenue Elementary is a place where Cooperative Active learners are Responsible for their Educational Success.  (M.A.E CARES).  This dedication and commitment shared by all staff, parents and community help make MAE the amazing school it is and will continue to be from year to year.  So join us as we begin another fabulous year of learning and growing at MAE.
