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.

Welcome to the 2019-2020 School Year!

I am the newly selected Assistant Principal, Michelle Matthews!

I am excited to begin my first year as the Assistant Principal of Lois Craig Elementary. I was born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada and graduated from Western High School in the Clark County School District!


The 2019-2020 school year will be my 13th year in education working for the Clark County School District and my 1st year in school administration. Throughout my 13 years of educational experience I have taught Special Education in grades K-5, worked as a site-based Learning Strategist/Reading Coach, and served as a teacher mentor. My areas of expertise include reading, writing, math instruction, and positive behavior management.
