Principal's Corner

  • I am thrilled to be the building principal and instructional leader at East Stroudsburg Elementary School.
    After retiring from the New York City Department of Education with a thirty-three year career as teacher, assistant principal, principal and deputy superintendent, I began in this district in 2005 as Assistant Principal at J.T.Lambert Intermediate School. In 2006, I became Assistant Principal at Middle Smithfield Elementary School where I worked until June 2008. In March 2008 I began my tenure as Principal of East Stroudsburg Elementary, while simultaneously completing my responsibilities at Middle Smithfield. I am very excited about the culture that is being established at our school. We are a beautiful mosaic which is composed of parents and students from three different schools and faculty and staff from six different buildings. We envision our school as a community Mrs. Livingston where students, staff and parents work together to create an atmosphere that promotes academic excellence. Ultimately, the students of our community will become life-long learners who are productive citizens of our society. They will have long-term goals, high self-esteem and respect for themselves and all others. The students will develop decision-making skills, critical thinking skills and the ability to communicate effectively. Our school motto is “ESE Where We Strive for Excellence!”
