Principal Michelle Malone Dear William R Lummis Families,
I am thrilled to announce my appointment as the Principal of William R. Lummis Elementary School for the 2021-2022 school year. The last year and a half have brought about many challenges but also many opportunities. We have all learned a lot about the endurance and perseverance it takes to get through challenging times, which has shown how strong we are! I am excited to have our students return to campus to transition those skills back into the classroom.
I have served in the Clark County School District for 16 years in a variety of roles. I began my educational career as a classroom teacher, which allowed me to gain skills in working with all different age groups in the elementary school setting. I have also spent time as both a specialist and a learning strategist. In those roles, I developed a love of the bigger picture and discovering how important it is to know where students are coming from, and where they are going to, in order to give each student the best opportunity for success in the future. Most recently, I served as the Assistant Principal of Roger Bryan Elementary School where I worked with the school community to increase student achievement and enhance community involvement.
All of these experiences have solidified my core values. I believe that every decision that is made within our school must be made based upon the best interest of our students. This means we must have high expectations for all of our unique learners while providing equitable opportunities. I believe that we are all learners and that everyone has room to grow. Finally, I believe that a school campus should be a true community, where staff, students, and families can come together to support one another.
As we look forward to next year, my goal is to continue to build upon all of the wonderful things that make up the Lummis School Community, while continuously reviewing student achievement data, identifying areas for growth, and supporting our staff and students. I will work hard to build relationships with our students, families, staff, and community in order to help each and every one of our students prepare for the future. Lummis is an amazing school, and I am so grateful to be here.
I look forward to meeting all of our families and showing you how excited I am to be a part of the Lummis family! Go Lasers! Sincerely, Ms. Malone, Principal William R. Lummis Elementary School email@example.com
Assistant Principal Gina Campbell Hey Lummis Lasers! I’m Gina Campbell, your new Assistant Principal. I am thrilled to be back in Summerlin, where my educational career started out.
I was born and raised in Michigan and am a proud graduate of Eastern Michigan University, where I earned my Bachelor Degree in Elementary Education. I moved to Nevada and began my career at Linda Rankin Givens Elementary School here in Summerlin, as a fifth grade teacher. I taught there for 10 years before making the leap into administration. I received my Masters of Education in Advanced Teaching and Leadership with a Specialization in Administration from Sierra Nevada College and attended Clark County School District’s Leadership Program. From there, I journeyed over to the Centennial area to become the Dean of Students at Justice Myron E. Leavitt Middle School. I spent three years as the Dean, and was anxious to get back into elementary. I soon became the Assistant Principal of Ruthe Deskin Elementary School, where I stayed for the three years. From there, I became the Assistant Principal of Billy and Rosemary Vassiliadis Elementary. And now, I am honored to be joining the Lummis team here at William E. Lummis Elementary!
My wonderful husband Michael is a Police Sergeant and we have identical twin girls, who were born in 2017. Our adventurous family enjoys weekend getaways in our RV, hiking Red Rock Canyon, running half marathons, and watching movies. When I’m able to sneak away for me time, you can find me hanging out with my soccer team on Sundays at Las Vegas Indoor Soccer. Our family believes that staying active, trying new things, and always being supportive of one another is the key to remaining healthy and happy. My educational philosophy is simple, “Students want to know how much you care before they care how much you know.” Building relationships with our students is the foundation of what we do as educators. It is imperative that our students can rely on us, trust us, and seek us out when they need assistance, and I look forward to building those relationships with not only our students, but with our community as well. Let’s make this a great year, together!
