Welcome to Carlisle Elementary. I have served Carlisle Elementary as principal for the past 18 years. I'm incredibly proud of the work that our staff is doing with regard to Professional Learning Communities and their commitment to professional excellence and continuous improvement. We were recently designated as an Exceptional school based upon our Iowa Report Card statistics which ranks us in the top 2% of all Iowa elementary buildings.
On a personal note, I'm a transplanted farm girl from NE Missouri and a Drake graduate. I am a recent empty-nester as my youngest child Madison is attending Northwestern University in Evanston. My two sons Spencer and Alex are graduates of Grand View and the University of Iowa, respectively. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, biking, running, cooking, and spending time with family and friends.
Please know that you are always welcome and we encourage you to be actively involved in your child's education. Please do not hesitate to reach out to any staff member. We look forward to working together to ensure the happiness, success, health, and safety of every student.
