Parents, Students and Somerset Losee Community,

 

I want to thank you all for the honor of serving you as the Principal of Somerset Academy at Losee.  I cannot wait to meet students, parents and teachers and get the 2019-2020 school year started.  In order to build a productive relationship with each of you, I must first earn your trust and respect.  I want to give you all a little background on my prior experience. 

 

I grew up in Arlington Heights, Illinois the oldest of three children.  I participated in Cross Country, Basketball and Track in High School and to be honest my desire to participate in sports and clubs played a big role in my academic success.  After High School I moved on to Augustana College in Rock Island, Illinois to complete my bachelor’s degree.  Augustana is a small school that offered me the opportunity to continue participating in Track and Field.  Ultimately, Track and Field coaching connections led me to a teaching opportunity in Las Vegas. 

 

I began my teaching career in 1999 at Faith Lutheran Jr./Sr. High School.  I loved teaching middle school social studies and coaching the High School Cross Country and Track teams.  I learned so much and became very confident that Las Vegas was my home.  In 2002 I moved to Cimarron-Memorial High School and continued coaching and teaching.  I am very passionate about coaching.  I carry the lessons I learned from coaching teams and athletes to working with teachers and students.  I will push all of you hard, but I will work right along with you.  In 2010 I became an administrator and I have spent the past eight years working to improve each school that I had the opportunity to serve.  I was a Dean of Students at Centennial High School and an Assistant Principal at both Western High School and Arbor View High School. 

 

I have spent the past month learning about Somerset Academy at Losee and listening to parents, students and staff.  I have worked with my outstanding administrative team to develop an action plan to address some of the concerns that I have heard.  Through this process, we developed a motto for the year CLEAR EYES. FULL HEARTS. CAN’T LOSE!

I believe that I serve each of you in this community and I will lead all interactions with understanding and kindness.  I hope that the administration, teachers, support staff, students and parents will do the same.  I see some of the challenges ahead of us, but I know if we all work together with kindness and compassion, we cannot lose. 

 

I hope you will all join the Losee team to make this a winning year!  I’m here for the long haul and we will succeed!

Sincerely,

Jessica Scobell
