Principal's Message

  • shelly  

    Dear Jacksonville Elementary Community,

    It is a great honor to serve as the principal of Jacksonville Elementary School.  Our school and town is an amazing and special place. Our students are surrounded by dedicated adults who thrive on seeing them learn and grow.
    I am thrilled to be returning to the Jacksonville team!  I have been in the field of education for twenty years. Fourteen of those years were in Jacksonville as a classroom teacher. I have most recently served as the principal at Jefferson Elementary and my prior experience includes working in private industry as a Human Resource Director.  I grew up in southern Oregon where my daughter attended Medford schools. My husband and I love living in the Rogue Valley and supporting this community.  It is my belief that children should love coming to school and it is my mission to have all students find joy in learning. 
    This year will certainly be different than any other but I am confident that our team will come together to grow students academically, socially and joyfully. Our district vision is All Are Learning and Learning is for All is more fitting than ever!
    Please explore our website to learn more about our curriculum, programs and events.  Also, please like our Jacksonville Elementary Facebook page to receive updates about our school community.
    I look forward to working with you. 
    Shelly Inman
