Greetings!  I'm the newly selected Principal, Michele Cobb!

I'm very excited to serve the Lois Craig family as principal after a year as the Assistant Principal.  I was born and raised in Reno, Nevada and have been in the Las Vegas valley for the last 15 years.  I have two children in the Clark County School District, who will start the 2nd and 5th grade. 

 

The 2019-2020 school year will be my 20th year in education and 8th year in school administration.  I have been in the Clark County School District for 16 years and have taught a variety of grade levels from kindergarten through 6th grade, in addition to being a reading coach.  My experiences also include expertise in writing and math instruction. Positive behavior management skills and strategies are another strength I bring to Lois Craig. 

My goal is for all of our students to have a positive learning experience through a safe, happy environment.  It is important that all students know the steps to be successful learners and the teachers and staff of Lois Craig will make sure that happens.  Finally, our students need to come to school every day to participate in all the exciting learning opportunities that Lois Craig will offer.  I look forward to continuing to getting to know the families and community members of our wonderful school.   

Sincerely,

 

Michele Cobb

My name is Heather Gonzalez and I am thrilled to serve as your new Assistant Principal!I am excited to work with Ms. Cobb and the Lois Craig staff to provide your child with an enriching school experience. 

I was born and raised in Las Vegas, and I am proud to say that I am a product of the Clark County School District. I grew up in Northwest Las Vegas and graduated from Centennial High School. I earned my bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from UNLV. I began my teaching career in the Clark County School District as an elementary school teacher and I’ve also served as a middle school teacher and learning strategist. During this time, I earned my Master’s degree in Advanced Teaching and Leadership from Sierra Nevada College. 

In my spare time, I enjoy gardening, cooking, traveling, and spending time with myfiancé, our sweet Labrador, Gigi, and our wonderful family and friends.

I strongly believe that all students can succeed, and it is our duty to ensure that every child is provided a safe learning environment in which they receive the individualized support they need in order to reach their full potential. Additionally, I believe that our teachers, students, and families should feel like they’re a part of a community. Thus, I focus on fostering a strong partnership between home and school and creating lasting,meaningful relationships.

I look forward to getting to know all of you and being a partner in your child's education. Once again, I am truly honored to serve this community and I look forward to a fantastic year!

Sincerely,

 

Heather Gonzalez

Assistant Principal
