Dear Coleman Elementary School Community,

I am honored to have been appointed as the new principal of Kevin K. Coleman Elementary School.

I come to Coleman Elementary with ten years of experience as a classroom teacher -7 in NYC and the last 3 in Central Falls, RI- so I am aware of the challenges that an urban school faces; the satisfaction of watching children thrive despite the odds is well worth it!

In order to accomplish this success, we will need to work together through a shared vision and consistent investment. Challenges will always come up, but as long as we develop a community where everyone feels respected and valued, I know we will face those challenges with grace. Together I know we will lead all of our students to academic success and joyful school memories.

I look forward to getting to know you all. I can be reached via email at dortiz@woonsocketschools.com or just stop by to introduce yourself any time as my door is always open to you.

Respectfully,

Danira Ortiz
