Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year!

Michelle Maes, Principal

I am thrilled to be starting my second year as the Principal at South Lakewood Elementary (SLE)!  I’m in my 21st year in education and excited to continue to grow and learn while leading our community.  I was an elementary school teacher for nine years, working in Texas before joining Jeffco Public Schools. I have also served as an Instructional Coach and Master Teacher, working with elementary and middle school staff and school leadership.  I supported schools through my position at the Jeffco Ed Center with Professional Learning Communities (PLCs), Educator Evaluation, and Instructional Leadership.  Additionally, I served as an Assistant Principal for Emory Elementary for three years.

I am family centered and love spending time with my dog, my son, my parents and my extended family.  We are an active family and enjoy attending all of my son William’s baseball and football games.  We spend a lot of time outdoors, enjoying the Colorado sunshine.  We also love to travel.  Our favorite destination is always the beach!

Please reach out and say hello.  I'd love to talk to you about your hopes and dreams for your child and for our SLE community.  Know that my greatest hope is for all SLE students to feel safe and welcome in our community, in order for each student to achieve to his/her fullest potential! 

As always, please do not hesitate to reach out to me directly with any questions you may have. Even if I may not have the answer, I will be able to elevate your questions to find an answer. I am looking forward to the start of school and cannot wait to work with your children this year. It is an honor to be the principal of such an amazing community!
