Principal's Corner

  • Principal Ingrid Lin

    Dear Mentone Elementary:

    It is with great honor and excitement that I introduce myself, Ingrid H. Lin, as the new Principal at Mentone Elementary. My passion for education and supporting the success of all students has been shaped over the past 17 years as an elementary, middle, and high school teacher and professor, along with administrative experience in three different districts. In each of my roles, I have sought to ensure the success of each student and the school, by providing the best instructional and extracurricular opportunities for all students.

    Similarly, it is my number one priority at Mentone Elementary to ensure that every student receives a well-rounded 21st Century education. A well-rounded education demands outstanding instruction from top-notch teachers, as well as extracurricular opportunities, and supports that enable students to develop character, cultivate passions, and explore the world outside of the classroom.

    As the Principal at Mentone Elementary, I am committed to ensuring that student needs and interests assist in shaping instruction and extracurricular opportunities. Most importantly, an excellent education is not possible without the great collaboration of students, families, community, and staff. I am looking forward to being part of the Mentone experience and to learn more about the amazing students, families, and staff while learning about the rich school history and success.

    I look forward to a great school year ahead of us! Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions, concerns, or ideas that you would like to discuss.
