Principal's Message

  • Braun







    I am truly honored to serve as the principal of Garfield Elementary. Thank you for entrusting us to help your child grow academically and personally. Our goal is that your child will feel safe, welcomed and connected while at Garfield. Garfield is the school where All Gators Belong. Here at Garfield, our staff members are dedicated to giving their best to assure that your child receives a great education. I want you to know that I am committed to, and looking forward to, working alongside each one of you in the assuring that Garfield Elementary continues to be the best school for students, parents, and this community.

    For those you who I have not had the pleasure of meeting, I would like to share a little bit about myself.  I have 14 years of experience in education including time as an assistant principal, 5 years as a K-8 Teacher on Special Assignment, and 8 years as a classroom teacher.  My dedication and passion for student success have never wavered. I am a lifelong learner and am currently pursuing my doctorate degree in Educational Leadership from the University of Southern California. I also earned my National Board Certification in 2017 in Literacy.

    Understanding that success comes from working as a team. Being actively involved in your child’s education is essential in developing a strong partnership for each student’s success. Please be sure you take time every day to connect with your child. Talk to your child about what they are doing in school have your child read to you, provide a quiet place to do homework, and help your child stay organized. Showing your child you care demonstrates to them how important an education is. 

    At Garfield, we understand that every child is unique and it is our mission to meet each student’s needs and prepare them to be productive citizens of this world, both academically and emotionally. Garfield has an open door policy, so please contact your child’s teacher or myself at any time. We are all here to support you and your child in the pursuit of excellence
