From the Principal's Desk

  • Welcome to Challenger Elementary!

    It is the goal of our school community at Challenger to create a rich learning environment for all students.
    We truly believe in Helping Everyone Learn and Succeed.

    Challenger Elementary is a school that focuses on the Prowler Way.

    It is our goal to strengthen student academic achievement. We utilize what we know about each individual child to provide academic activities and interventions to meet student needs. We meet regularly to review student progress. Parents/guardians are an integral part of student success.

    Please do not hesitate to contact Challenger if you have any questions.

About Me

  • I have been Principal at Challenger since 2000. I graduated from Minnesota State University - Mankato with a Degree in Educational Administration. I have spent my career as a Multiage Teacher at Hillcrest Elementary School in Bloomington, MN and Second Grade Teacher at Cedar Ridge Elementary in Eden Prairie, MN before being Principal at Challenger Elementary School. Deciding to become an administrator came from a strong desire to make a positive impact on an entire school community as well as the desire to help build the capacity of teachers and students as we move into a challenging 21st century.
