Great Homecoming!

Thank you to the parents and students that stopped by the Homecoming to say hello. It was my pleasure to meet you. Howard collected quite a few entries into the book raffle so hopefully we will be home to the lucky class. We will find out after the drawing in September!

Hello Dragons!

Principal’s Introduction

Dear Howard Family,

It is with tremendous pride and enthusiasm that I write this letter of introduction as the newly appointed principal at Howard Elementary.  My name is Linda Lazar and I have served the Dearborn Public Schools since 2005.  I began my career teaching 5th grade at Becker Elementary.  After five years at Becker, I accepted the Title I resource position at Henry Ford Elementary.  In my six years at Henry Ford, I worked with grades Kindergarten through 5th providing intervention to students, working alongside teachers to shape instruction, and serving on the school leadership team.  I then served as the Assistant Principal at McCollough Unis for the past two years.

I have lived the majority of my life in Dearborn and I am a Fordson Graduate.  I earned my Business Administration and Education degrees from the University of Michigan – Dearborn, my Masters in Education from Wayne State, and am currently pursuing my Doctoral Degree in Educational Leadership through the University of Michigan – Dearborn.  I have been married for seven years and my husband and I are the proud parents of a five-year old daughter.  We still reside in and love the Dearborn community.  I grew up with a love for school that I hope to instill in all of our students.

My journey with the Dearborn Schools has been a rewarding one in many ways and cultivating life-long relationships with students, staff, and families has been the most rewarding part of it all.  Continuing to build and expand these relationships with the Howard family is something that I am sincerely looking forward to.  I believe a school is a place where everyone should feel valued and respected and that as a team, we all can contribute so much to ensure that Howard can continue on its path of success.  Through collaboration and continuous improvement, I hope to ensure that our students find success and become life-long learners with a love for school.

Parents, students, staff, and administration all play an important role in the life and education of a child and Howard has been a model in this collective community effort which has resulted in allowing Howard School to uphold a rich tradition of academic and cultural excellence.  I am confident we can continue and expand these traditions in the future.

I look forward to meeting and working with all of you this school year!  Enjoy the remaining time of the summer and I look forward to welcoming you back to school on Monday, August 27, 2018.

Best Regards,

Linda Lazar
