Principal's Message

A Warm Welcome to the 2023-24 School Year!

Dear Students, Parents, and Guardians,

As we embark on a new school year full of promise and potential, I am thrilled to extend my warmest greetings to all of you. I am Diana Cissne, and it is my distinct honor to serve as the Principal of Maya Angelou Elementary School. With 25 years of experience in education, both as a classroom teacher and an administrator, I bring a deep passion for nurturing young minds and fostering a vibrant learning community.

Maya Angelou Elementary is not just a school; it's a place where dreams take root, where inspiration flourishes, and where excellence is both our aspiration and our reality. Our collective journey in education is guided by a vision of providing equitable access to rigorous instruction in an inclusive environment that prioritizes the social-emotional well-being of each student. Our commitment to empowerment extends to every learner who walks through our doors, as we believe that every child has the capacity to achieve greatness.

At Maya Angelou, we are a community of educators who understand the immense impact of collaboration. Through our Professional Learning Communities (PLCs), we continuously refine our teaching methods to cater to the unique needs of every individual child. Our dedicated staff members are driven by the belief that by working together, we can unlock the potential within each student, fostering growth and achievement.

Our students are at the heart of everything we do. Engaged in dynamic and challenging learning activities across all content areas, they are equipped with the tools they need to master standards and succeed in a rapidly evolving world. As we nurture their intellectual curiosity and personal growth, we ensure that they are not only academically proficient but also socially and emotionally resilient.

Maya Angelou Elementary School is a place of boundless opportunities, and I feel truly privileged to be a part of this amazing community. I am genuinely excited to partner with you, our parents and guardians, in the journey of educating and supporting your child. Your involvement and support are integral to their success, and together, we will create an environment that fosters academic excellence and holistic growth.

As we begin this new chapter together, I encourage you to reach out, connect, and share your thoughts, ideas, and aspirations. The doors of communication are always open, and I am here to listen, learn, and collaborate in order to create an exceptional educational experience for our students.

Here's to a year filled with discovery, growth, and achievement. Together, we will empower ALL learners to reach their greatest potential and create a brighter future.

Warm regards,

Diana Cissne
Principal of Maya Angelou Elementary School
