ELP at Lincoln & Mann with Mrs. Bradford
Lincoln & Mann families, welcome to ELP!
I am so excited to begin this school year with you and to meet new students, staff, and parents! This will be my 21st year in education. I most recently served as the ELP teacher at Lincoln and Mann Elementary Schools in Iowa City. In previous years, I have served as a K, 3rd, 4th, 6th grade, and intervention teacher. In addition, I served as an elementary principal for 4 years. My passion is working with students and seeing that spark ignite for them!
I am married and we have three children. My husband has a custom cabinet business in the Iowa City area. Our oldest child (22) lives in Omaha, NE. and works in the construction industry. Our daughter (20) attends the University of Iowa for bio-medical Engineering. Our youngest (15) is a sophomore at City High School. We love the Iowa City Community School District and Hawkeye country!
My goal is to provide a professional, safe, engaging, educational environment for your student to challenge him/herself, make & learn from mistakes, and thrive in!
Attitude Is Everything...
At 211 degrees, water is hot.
At 212 degrees, it boils.
And with boiling water, comes steam.
And with steam, you can power a train.
Just one degree more can make all the difference.
Where can you turn up the heat?
2 extra acts of kindness weekly plant 104 more seeds of generosity each year.
15 extra minutes a day creates over 90 hours each year for what's most important to you.
1 extra contact daily sparks 180 more personal connections every 6 months.
1 extra risk each week leads to 52 more opportunities every year for excitement and possibility.
It's your life. You are responsible for your results. Challenge yourself and others.
Be Two-Twelve! Change our World!
