Dear Booth Free Families,

I am thrilled to serve as Booth Free School's principal.  I have had a life-long passion for working with children and feel very grateful for the opportunity to serve in this role. I am truly honored to be part of such a caring, compassionate, and hard-working community.

Our mission in Region 12 is to provide each and every child with the highest quality education possible.  As educators, we have the incredible responsibility and opportunity of not just teaching our students, but also fostering relationships and to be a positive impact in their lives. This means it is our responsibility to teach and to meet the needs of every child instructionally, socially and emotionally. However,  I believe it takes a village to raise a child and we are truly a village with teachers, parents, and other community members working together to provide what is best for every child here at Booth Free School. 

As your principal, I promise to keep students at the forefront of every decision we make as a school.  We will strive to teach and provide students with the knowledge, skills, and mindset necessary to have a successful future.  We will encourage and teach curiosity, problem-solving, and instill a life-long love of learning.  We will teach having a growth mindset, so all students will learn to face challenges with confidence and perseverance.  And most of all, every child will be valued and cared for.

I look forward to an amazing year!

Dr. Emily Rhew
