Our mission at Elmwood Elementary School is to facilitate academic achievement, foster positive behaviors and attitudes, and inspire our students to lifelong learning. Therefore, we as teachers will pursue continuous growth and develop our skills as educators. The staff of Elmwood Elementary School believes that all students have the right to achieve their potential.
My students and my colleagues surround me with the encouragement and compassion it takes to be the most successful educator I can be. I feel lucky to call Elmwood Elementary School my home.
I am proud to be a teacher at Elmwood Elementary because of the commitment to the success of every child. The Elmwood community has genuinely felt like a second home where students and staff have become like family.
I grew up in Elmwood Park and am grateful to be raising my children here as they go to Elmwood School. The teachers and staff members always work as a team to make sure students receive the best education; I’m honored to be part of that.
It has been a pleasure serving as the bilingual community liaison. I am able to assist students, families and staff by providing information in a language other than English, in order to support engagement of our bilingual families.
Elmwood Elementary is more than just a school; it is a community where all members work together to get the best out of each other every day. The partnerships and relationships that I have made with students, families and faculty are invaluable.
