Assistant Principal's Message

  • Welcome to the 2021-22 school year! I am honored to be the newly assigned Assistant Principal at Stephen Foster Elementary. I look forward to having all students back on campus! A huge welcome to our Pre-K and Kindergarten Families and new students! At Stephen Foster, we are committed to creating a friendly atmosphere, where everyone is family. I know that we will have an incredible school year with our students, parents, and teachers! 

    Here is a little background about me. As an undergraduate, I attended Barry University, seeking a bachelor’s degree in Exceptional Student Education. After graduating and beginning my career as a teacher, I also began my journey towards a Master’s Degree in Elementary Education, specializing in Reading. As my passion for teaching continued to grow, I knew I also wanted to make a difference outside of the classroom. I began the endeavor of a second Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership. I served as Assistant Principal for 4 years prior to being assigned to Stephen Foster Elementary.   

    It is a pleasure to serve as your new Assistant Principal. Please feel free to contact me to discuss your child or just to say hello! 

    With great pride, 

    Vanessa Machin
