Edison Elementary School

Message From Our Principal

 

Hello, Edison families and students! I am honored and proud to be able to serve as the principal at Edison Elementary for the 2017/18 school year. Many people have been working tirelessly through the summer to ensure that this year is the best one yet. I am committed to ensuring that Edison Elementary provides all students with the skills and tools they need to be successful in all of their future endeavors—personal, professional, and academic. I am also confident that Edison puts a world-class staff in front of our students. We collectively believe that every child can and will achieve to high levels, and we will do whatever it takes to make sure our students are successful.

This year, Edison will focus on providing students with an academically rigorous and rewarding school experience. We will work to ensure that our students receive more personalized instruction to meet their individual needs. We will also continue our efforts to provide students with life skills outside of just academics. We believe that each student is a “Whole Child,” and we embrace the opportunity to teach our students with this in mind. As such, we are dedicated to addressing all of the needs of our students, and we will do what it takes to provide them with all of the tools they need for their futures—not just academics.

Lastly, I am committed to ensuring that school is a place where all students feel accepted and successful. I have an extensive background as a high school teacher, and I am of the belief that elementary school is where we must instill a sense of joy and eagerness for knowledge that will not only last through school, but also put our students on the trajectory to become life-long learners. I believe that educators must build a voracious curiosity in our students about the world they live in if they are to become competitive citizens in the world of tomorrow. As such, I am committed to building an instructional program that is engaging, challenging, and one that sets up our students for success.

To help reach our lofty goals for Edison this year, we welcome Brett Sizemore as the assistant principal. Mr. Sizemore is a highly-skilled educator who comes to us from Stanley Elementary. He will be instrumental in ensuring that Edison soars to new heights for our students, and we are proud to call him our newest addition to the Eagles staff.

Again, I cannot emphasize enough how excited and honored I am to take on the role as principal at Edison Elementary. I approach this work with humility and treat it with the respect and care that it deserves. I work tirelessly to ensure that our programs meet the needs of your students and propel them to a place where they can achieve their wildest dreams.

I look forward to working and partnering with all of you this year! Please feel free to reach out to me via email, phone, or appointment for an in-person meeting at any time! Go Eagles!

Henry Smith
