Principal, Lisa McCarthy
I am excited to begin the 2021-2022 school year as principal at Lakeview Elementary School! I have been warmly welcomed and look forward to immersing myself in the school community. I have a Master’s Degree in Education and have worked in public education since 2000 in many roles. I am excited to bring my collaborative and distributive leadership style to Lakeview Elementary School to support students, teachers and families in creating a vibrant learning community.
I was born and raised in central Vermont and am now enjoying watching my own children grow up in this area. When not at school, I enjoy spending time with my many animals (horses, chickens and three dogs), as well as taking advantage of the outdoors. Hiking, skiing and spending time on the water are a few of the activities I enjoy.
Lakeview Elementary School is located in a unique and special part of Vermont. As a school, we value place-based learning and our community partnerships. We seek to incorporate these components into our curriculum whenever we can. We pride ourselves in our ability to truly know each and every student and it is our mission to ensure that all students in our school are able to show growth in academic and social/emotional areas. All students who enter our doors are welcomed and appreciated for the unique qualities they bring to our learning community. We look forward to an amazing 2021-2022 school year!
Best, Lisa McCarthy
