Meet Principal Mary Cannie

Principal CannieI am proud to be leading the Boone Elementary School team and truly excited to be part of a learning community once again.

I come to Boone with a varied career in both public education and in the private sector. I started my career as an elementary school teacher and have worked in so many aspects of education: guidance counselor, building administrator, central office administrator (including curriculum development), a superintendent and a state Department of Education administrator. Before serving as Executive Director of Instructional Support Services, I managed my own consulting company and facilitated professional development in school districts throughout the nation.

I bring a depth of experience back to the front lines of education, where I look forward to engaging with students and the learning community at the most important level. I can't think of any job that's better than one that comes with its own playground!

In addition to working collaboratively to focus on student achievement, I have set the following goals for myself as Boone Elementary Principal:

  • To honor programs currently in place, with special attention to supporting the Spanish Immersion Program
  • To support teachers in refining their craft by engaging with them in reflective conversations focused on curriculum
  • To support students in accepting responsibility for their individual learning and behavior
  • To support parents, guardians and members of the Boone Elementary School educational community in their common goal of meeting student needs.

My pledge is to serve in an open, honest, collaborative manner that keeps our campus a thriving place of mutual respect, trust and confidence. Please feel free to come talk to me any time and join me in making Boone a place where academic magic happens.

Educationally yours,
Mary Cannie, Ed.D.
