It is with great pleasure that I write this letter to you as the incoming principal of Lewistown Elementary School. It is truly an honor to become a part of the Lewistown family and community. This is  a unique and special place that I am incredibly excited to become a part of.

My many experiences serving education has taken me overseas teaching and opportunities in Frederick County Public Schools. My classroom experiences include teaching kindergarten, first grade, second grade, third grade, reading and math intervention and reading specialist role. I served as an assistant principal here at Lewistown several years ago  and most recently, as an assistant principal at Tuscarora Elementary School.  I grew up in Frederick, staying local and enjoying the lakes, hiking trails and diverse community events which Frederick has to offer with my family. 

This summer, I plan to spend the majority of my time working with staff and the school community to ensure a smooth transition. I will get to know our building, our community, and familiarize myself with the unique needs of our school. I believe wholeheartedly that every student deserves a quality education and that only happens when the school and the families work together for the best interests of our children. 

I am truly honored to be given this opportunity and look forward to immersing myself completely in our school and in our community. I believe my main responsibility is to put our teachers in the best possible position to succeed, as they will in turn put our children in the best possible position to succeed.  Our community will  work together to adjust and plan for continuous educational opportunities for the future and compassionately take into consideration the variety of situations families are in during this unprecedented time. We will continue the strong tradition of TeamLES!

I look forward to meeting all of you and please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, concerns, or ideas you would like to share.

Yours in education,

Belinda Fockler
