Educational Philosophy

Dear Friends of Elizabeth Haddon School,

We are excited to welcome you to school and Elizabeth Haddon’s 107th year.

Students, as you go through your life you will learn that things don’t always go as planned. Being flexible is key to success, I can’t think of a truer example than what we are experiencing now. Whether you are learning in school or at home things will be different. We will wear masks, wash our hands more, practice social distancing, and see our teachers through the computer. The classroom looks a little bit different. The desks aren’t in groups like they usually are. We won’t share materials like we usually do. There will be times when things are challenging. But we will get through these changes together as a school family. We need to be patient, kind, and helpful to one another. 

And while things are different I want you to know that things are the same too. It’s the same amazing, fun, smart, and caring teachers and educational assistants. It’s the same friendly face of Ms. Amy in the office. It’s the same nurse Mrs. Mango who helps you stay healthy. It’s the same counselor Mrs. LoCicero who helps kids express themselves. It’s the same place you get to see old friends and make new ones. It’s the same school filled with learning new things. And it’s the same Principal who loves Lizzy Haddon’s students, teachers, and families. 

We are stronger together and while this year is different I know it will be filled with learning, fun, and many great memories. Whether it’s through a screen or in person we can’t wait to see you at school and be back together. 

I would like to thank our teachers, custodians, maintenance department, technology team, my fellow administrators for all of their hard work in getting ready for the year. I would also like to thank our PTA and families for all of their kind words and support. 

We are always looking to improve and go down news paths. We value the voices and perspectives of all members of our school community. Please contact me at any time if you have questions, concerns or suggestions. We are stronger together!
