Lara Liden, Principal
Hello Lone Pine families!
My name is Lara Liden and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to serve the students, teachers, and community as the Principal at Lone Pine Elementary in the upcoming year! I am ecstatic to join such a collaborative staff that is passionate and committed to inspire students and their families.
I have been an educator/ instructional leader in the Rogue Valley for the past 25 years, teaching everything from Kindergarten through 5th Grade as well as college courses, and supporting teachers through mentoring and coaching. I received my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and my Master’s in Administration both from Southern Oregon University. I am truly passionate about investing in elementary learning.
I am also blessed to be the mother of a daughter who is starting college and a son who just graduated college! My husband and I enjoy time with our family, camping, doing outdoor activities, traveling.
I strongly believe that working together we can support our children to learn, grow and thrive and ensure every child’s academic, social and emotional needs are met. I strive to support the Lone Pine community in providing a safe, healthy, and encouraging environment to positively impact all learners. I look forward to connecting with you during this upcoming school year!
