I hope everyone saw the announcement that Cindy Kapeller has been named the principal at Steele Elementary School for the 2017-18 school year. I was able to walk around the building with Cindy last Friday. I was incredibly impressed with her as an educator and person. When we walked around classes, she easily made connections with students. She was able to accurately pinpoint strong teacher moves that led to student success, and she made all of the adults feel comfortable when she spoke with them. She also asked great questions about Steele and seemed to have an instant connection with the values of our community. I’m very excited to work with her during the transition, and know she’ll be a great principal for the students, staff, and community of Steele.
