Dear Monfort Community,
Greetings! I am Jennifer Sheldon, your new Principal at Monfort Elementary School. I am thrilled to begin the new school year and look forward to meeting students, staff, parents, and community members.
I am making the transition from Maplewood Elementary where I have been the assistant principal for two years. Prior to my role at Maplewood, I worked as a professional development coordinator, a district coach, an instructional coach, and a teacher. I am excited to be part of a learning community where kids come first.
As I make this transition to Monfort, I am aware of the anticipation and eagerness that accompanies new leadership in any organization. I know that change can provoke both excitement and anxiety. It is my goal to spend time learning about our school and all of its stakeholders. I eagerly anticipate getting to know the Monfort community, and learning about your hopes and dreams for our school. What is important to Monfort Elementary? What are we proud of? What do we want to work on?
I believe that genuine collaboration fosters ownership of a rich school culture. Together we do make a difference! Supporting our kids to do well at school, and in their lives is the center of our work. I am honored to have been selected to serve this community, and will work hard to gain your trust and respect as Monfort’s principal.
Please feel free to stop in, and introduce yourself to me. I will be at school most every day until June 14th. I will be on vacation from June 15th-July 9th. When we return we will begin trainings and school year preparation, so you might want to call before you come over. We will plan a community event before school begins in August. Until then, I hope all of our students, staff, and families also get to enjoy some quality time together this summer. I look forward to meeting all of you!
