Loriann A. Leota is the new Assistant Principal for Stephen Foster and Lindstrom Elementary Schools. It is an honor to have been selected by the Bellflower Unified School District to serve this fantastic community of learners. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in English from William Paterson University, a Master of Arts in Teaching from the University of Southern California and a Master of Arts in Education: Educational Administration from Concordia University. She has been in education for almost a decade as a Teacher, Curriculum Specialist, Curriculum Developer, Assistant Principal and Summer School Principal.
I believe that every child is unique and if they are provided with a caring, secure and engaging environment, they will grow intellectually, emotionally and socially. As the Assistant Principal, she will work to support students in those three areas, with a deep understanding that we are not only working to prepare our students for the next grade, but for the future! She believes in open communication and a strong home to school connection.
