A Message from Principal Bradley

Principal“Enter to learn; depart to serve”
– Mary McLeod Bethune

I consider it a privilege to join the Bethune Community as your proud new principal!  I am honored to continue the legacy of closing the belief gap.  I am confident that our community of learners are destined for greatness and at Bethune we provide the strong foundation of self-awareness, accountability and academic rigor needed to help all things come to fruition.  I join a staff of committed educators and faculty who love and believe in our children and see our parents as partners.

My 19 years of experience have prepared me for the road ahead and we still have work to do!  We will continue to be steadfast as we remove barriers to learning for all of our children.  High quality education with high standards doesn’t happen – it is planned and executed keeping the end in mind.  We will invest sweat equity in each of our students simply because they are worth it!

Our Mission

Our mission at Mary McLeod Bethune Elementary School is to provide a world class education in a safe, high performance, and academically challenging learning environment.
