Principal's Message

Welcome to Baldwin Lane Elementary School!


I am thrilled by the honor of serving as the Principal of Baldwin Lane Elementary School for the 23-24 school year.  Baldwin Lane is filled with exceptional staff, wonderful students, and engaged families.  We have a strong reputation for having a positive school culture filled with compassionate, caring, and welcoming staff that is dedicated to the students they serve.  We are committed to providing innovative lessons to our students which incorporate technology that supports our students’ needs as 21st-century learners. 

Our school community will continue to dedicate itself to providing our students with a well-rounded educational experience.  While the core curriculum is provided for all students, we believe that it is critical to also support the social and emotional needs of our students through positive behavior interventions.  This is crucial in order to create a pathway that will enable them to access the learning opportunities they will have with us and in the future. 

We encourage you to visit school to see that we are a school committed to children.  You will find that this is a vibrant and engaging community of teachers and learners.  To our parents, we believe that your involvement is an essential component to not only the academic success of your child but the social-emotional success as well.   I encourage you to communicate regularly with your child’s teacher and support their learning in the classroom as well as to get engaged in all that Baldwin Lane Elementary has to offer.  Your participation in our school is needed and greatly appreciated!

I look forward to partnering with you on behalf of our students as we foster a growth mindset anchored in positivity and encouragement.
