Principal's Corner

Jana  Anderson

My name is Jana Anderson, principal of the Gold Academy.  My vision is that learning occurs in a safe and respectful environment with high expectations for everyone.  The teachers at the Gold Academy guide, facilitate, and monitor differentiated learning experiences which empowers all students to become self-directed learners.  Support for this learning is a partnership of family, school, and our community.  Some highlights of Gold Academy include….

·         Implementation of PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention Strategies) beginning in 2015-2016
·         Professional Development for staff each week based on curricular needs
·         Targeted interventions each day
·         1-on-1 iPad use for all sixth grade students beginning in 2015-2016
·         Family events throughout the school year

My goal is to support students, parents, and teachers on a daily basis and promote a caring environment that fosters trust and collaboration to ensure that our students are motivated to achieve their personal best.
