Welcome to Willow Lane Elementary School!


Welcome to Willow Lane Elementary School!

Willow Lane Elementary School is a lovely neighborhood school serving several areas of the White Bear Lake Area.  I am very excited to serve the students and families of Willow Lane as we work hard to develop a love for learning and help ALL of our students excel academically and socially to realize their dreams!  We work to teach our students to become engaged citizens with a global understanding of the community and the world.  It is an honor to work with a staff that is so dedicated and committed to meeting the needs of  the students at Willow Lane.  

We currently serve approximately 380 children in the southern portion of the White Bear Lake Area School District boundaries.  We value and treasure our diverse demographic population which provides Willow Lane Elementary School a rich, cultural tapestry of perspectives.  Our student population includes:

48% White

23% Black

15% Asian/Pacific Islander

10% Hispanic

1% American Indian/Alaskan Native

62% Free and Reduced Lunch

18% English Language Learners

9% Special Education

We work collaboratively with a number of community partners to meet the needs of all of our students on a daily basis.  We treasure these partnerships as each brings unique opportunities to enrich the lives of our students and families.

On a personal note, I am originally from Los Angeles, California where I was born and raised through high school.  I lived in the San Francisco Bay Area for 10 years prior to relocating to Rochester, Minnesota and going into Education.  I taught Kindergarten, 1st grade, 7th grade, and 9-12th grade.  In addition, I served as a district Staff Development and Continuous Improvement Coordinator, middle school assistant principal, elementary assistant principal and Education Consultant prior to joining the White Bear Lake Area Schools and Willow Lane.

I have two beautiful boys that have become young men in the blink of an eye and I fully understand how much your children's experience in school can impact their lives.  I work very hard to ensure each child experiences a safe, positive and meaningful learning experience at Willow Lane Elementary School.

Once again, it is both an honor and a pleasure to serve the children and families of Willow Lane!  We look forward to a fabulous School year!
