Welcome to Mary McPherson!

As Mary McPherson's Principal, I feel blessed to spend my days with great children, wonderful staff, and supportive families. Each day I strive to spend time with students.  I love spending time in the classrooms, the cafeteria, and on the playground.  I believe we must embrace a growth mindset and teach kids to value hardwork and GRIT! We must find joy in the little things and make school FUN! I love celebrating learning and watching our students grow! I do what I love....and I love what I do!  My hope is that every child at Mary Mac feels safe, loved, and academically challenged, and we look forward to school-family partnerships that achieve those goals! 

As we begin this unprecedented school year at Mary Mac, know that I am here for you.  As we plan for face-to-face and/or remote instruction, our staff will continue to collaborate with one another in planning to provide outstanding educational opportunities for your child/children. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the face-to-face and/or remote instruction, please feel free to contact me.

I hope you always feel welcome at the doors of our school, and please feel free to stop by or contact me at any time, as we work together for a GREAT EDUCATION of our students!
