"A good teacher is like a candle -
It consumes itself to light the way for others."

Dear Wilson Focus Staff and Families:
It is my pleasure to introduce myself as principal of Wilson Focus Elementary School. I
feel very fortunate to join the Wilson Focus school community and to be able to support
the students and the families of our school. I am looking forward to getting to know each
and every one of you.
My belief that students are at the center of all school-related decisions will guide our
work together. I am excited to unite my experience, my openness to learn, and my
child-centered approach to support our students and staff. I have been a classroom
teacher, a literacy coach, summer school principal, and an elementary supervisor. I
grew up in Omaha and graduated from the Omaha Public Schools. I am eager to focus
on quality instruction in every classroom, supporting the high-performing teachers,
maintaining the highest expectations, and helping all students succeed.
I hold a Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of Nebraska at Kearney, a Master
of Science Degree in Educational Administration and Supervision from the University of
Nebraska at Omaha, and an Endorsement in English as a Second Language from
Our common vision of wanting Wilson Focus School to be the best school for all its
students and families will guide us into a new school year. Together we will continue to
move Wilson Focus School and its students toward a strong future. Leadership, Technology, and Communication will be at the heart of what we do together.
Lu Ann Jacobs
