Principal's Message



  • Riverside Families,


         I am absolutely thrilled to be your new principal and to join this exceptional community of educators, students and parents. I have been working in Broward County Public Schools for 24 years in various teaching positions and for the last four years as an assistant principal. I am honored to serve this community.

         As the new principal, my utmost commitment is to the success and well-being of every student here who has chosen Riverside Elementary as their home. I truly believe education is an adventure filled with learning, growth and meaningful experiences for all.

         I am dedicated to continuing the environment of academic excellence and promoting a love for lifelong learning while providing a nurturing and safe environment where every child can flourish. I am committed to building upon the rich traditions and achievements of Riverside Elementary and meeting the needs of our students.

         I am genuinely excited to meet each and every one of you, to work alongside the incredible teachers and staff and support the endless possibilities that lie ahead for our community.

         Just know my door is always open and I look forward to a wonderful 23-24 school year!


    Be Happy, Be Kind, Be You,

    Lisa Balint
