Our Principal

This is my thirtieth year working in the Redmond School District. I taught in Redmond for 24 years at the elementary and middle school levels. This is my 5th year as the principal of M.A. Lynch Elementary. I have the greatest job, because I get to share in the lives of hundreds of amazing kids and families. 

I grew up participating in 4-H and FFA showing horses and sheep.  I was raised on a ranch and learned the value of chores. I adore the outdoors and working with animals. I also enjoy baking, science (especially Space Science) and meeting new people. 

My goal for our school is embodied in our mission statement: Empower All to learn, grow and succeed. I know that working as a team and supporting each other creates high levels of student success. I love my job and am thankful everyday that I get to be on this educational journey.
