Principal's Message

Dear Parents and Families:

              It is with great pride that I write this letter of introduction to you as the newly appointed principal of Whitman Elementary. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with rich traditions and a long-standing record of excellence.

              Over the past few months I have had the pleasure of many interactions with teachers, students, parents, and community members. From these conversations, it is clear there is a partnership between all members of the Whitman family to provide the best possible academic experience for our students. I look forward to continuing to foster the relationships with all parties and working with teachers and staff to provide a world-class educational experience for each child that promotes college and career readiness.

              I have been dedicated to the field of education for the past eleven years, serving students and families as a teacher, an Instructional Coach, and an Administrator. I have two children of my own who provide me with the challenge of seeing education from the Administrator and the parent perspective. I am so excited to bring my skills as an educational leader to Whitman to work with you as a partner in education to ensure every child’s success.

              All of us at Whitman are eager and excited to have a great year! This year we are working as a team to provide academic experiences for our students that are rigorous, relevant and builds relationships. As your Principal, I want to motivate people to strive for their very best while being there to support them when they struggle. I believe a successful school is a community where students and staff come to school every day feeling safe and knowing they are in the right place. I am truly blessed to be the instructional leader of such an awesome school community. Go Wildcats!


Mrs. Bishop
