Hello and welcome to Dover Elementary!  I am beginning my thrid year as principal at Dover.  I love our school.  The community is warm and supportive.  Our students are engaged and excited to be at school.  We "paws" to be safe, to be respectful, and to be responsible.  Our staff is dedicated to ensuring that Dover is a place where every student feel welcome.  While learning is our primary function we realize that some students need support.  We focus on getting each child what he/she needs. 

We have several speical programs at Dover that we are proud of.  The first is Dual Language Immersion.  To help our students prepare for college, career, and life in an inerconnected multicultural world, we offer a Spanish and English Dual Immersion program.  The goal is for students to be fluent in reading, writing, speaking and listening in both English and Spanish.  We also promote diving into the cultures within these languages.  What a huge assesst being bilingual and bicultural will be.  

Our English only classes also prepare our students prepare for college, career, and life in an inerconnected multicultural world.  Our teachers are focused on teaching not only fact but curiosity.  They teach life skills and instill a love of learning.  


I am very proud of my students and staff here at Dover.  We welcome you to our school!


 I am looking forward to seeing everyone in August!
