Mrs. Lynette Pettway
Greetings Douse Diamondbacks and Welcome to the 2020-21 school year!!
I am Lynette Pettway and I am truly honored to serve the students, staff, families and community of Douse Elementary as an Assistant Principal. I look forward to partnering with you as we work together to help our students reach their highest potential – academically, socially and emotionally.
Born and raised in Wisconsin (Go Packers!), I served in the military as an Intelligence Analyst and Russian Linguist. I then spent several years in the social work field working with foster children and foster families before I realized my dream of educating children. This will be my 14th year in KISD, where I have served as a teacher, Instructional Coach and Campus Instructional Specialist prior to becoming an Assistant Principal.
I truly believe that each and every child is capable of learning at high levels. By promoting a positive, nurturing and engaging environment, we allow all students to have the opportunity to achieve their personal best. I believe that as educators, we have the moral obligation to treat each and every student the way that we would want our own child to be treated. I also believe that our students can be even more successful when parents and school staff work together to meet each child’s needs. Please understand that we are here for you and that your child’s academic success, social well-being and safety are top priority for us. Your input is encouraged, valued and plays a significant role in your child’s success. Please know that my door is always open to help and support you focus on growth by doing what’s best for our students.
I’m looking forward to an amazing, successful year!
