Dear Monte Sano Students and Families,
It is with great excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as your new Principal of Monte Sano Elementary School. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with such a rich history, wonderful students, an extremely dedicated staff, and a supportive school community. I feel very fortunate to be part of this school and to support the students and families. Mrs. Lane and I are working hard to ensure a smooth transition.
On a personal note, I grew up in Augusta and attended Monte Sano Elementary School myself. I have two adult children, a grandson, and a sweet rescue dog, Greta. I have been dedicated to the field of education for more than 18 years and have worked with students ranging in age from Kindergarten through high school in a variety of roles, such as an elementary teacher, a K-8 instructional coach, assistant principal, as well as a principal.
I view education as a life-long process and expect that I will continue to learn more about the uniqueness of Monte Sano this year and in the years to come. Most importantly, I bring a belief that students are at the center of all school-related decisions. I am excited to blend my experience, my openness to learn, and my child-centered approach to support our students.
I look forward to meeting you soon and I am thrilled to bring my skills as an educational leader to Monte Sano Elementary School and to work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child’s success.
Dr. Amy W. McClure
