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!
