Welcome Ms. Canaday!

Greetings Parents and Families!


My name is Jessica Canaday and I am thrilled to be serving Laurel Park Elementary as the new Assistant Principal and Literacy Coach for grades K-2. I have 21 years of experience in education as a classroom teacher in pre-K through 2nd grades and reading specialist/interventionist for students in kindergarten through 5th grades. 


After many years of seeing and experiencing the challenges teachers and students face, I decided to pursue administration to make a greater positive impact on the lives and success of teachers, staff, and most importantly, our students. I am passionate about supporting our children’s academic and social-emotional well-being and committed to the work we do each day to help them learn, succeed, and grow towards the best version of themselves.   


Thank you for entrusting me with your child’s education and well-being at LPES. I look forward to getting to know you and your children this school year!
