My name is Michelle Maes. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to be the new Principal at South Lakewood Elementary (SLE).  I’m in my 20th 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 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 the Assistant Principal for Emory Elementary for three years.

 I am family centered and love spending time with my son, my parents and my extended family. We are an active family and enjoy attending my son William’s many different sporting events, as well as local sporting events in our community.  We spend a lot of time outdoors, enjoying  the Colorado sunshine.  We also love to travel.  Our favorite destination is always the beach!

 Please drop by and say hello.  I'd love to talk to you about your hopes and dreams for our SLE community.

 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!

 Michelle Maes
