Ms. Ethel Judon will serve as the new principal at Butcher-Greene Elementary starting the 2016-2017 school year. She has 24 years of experience in education.
For the past four years, she served as assistant principal at Brenda Scott Academy in Detroit, Michigan. This school was located in one of Detroit’s most challenging communities. It had an enrollment of 850, educating PreK-8 grade students.
Ms. Judon feels her experience in Detroit gave her the opportunity to grow immensely as an instructional leader and refined her vision for 21st century teaching and learning. In her position as assistant principal, some of her responsibilities included assisting with the daily operations of the school, providing support to PreK-8th grade students, evaluating staff, providing instructional leadership to staff, and serving as the parent and community liaison.
Prior to moving to Detroit, Ms. Judon worked in the Kansas City, Missouri Pubic schools for 20 years. Her experience as a classroom teacher, technology instructor, coordinator, and Instructional Coach also help to shape her vision for education.
Her educational philosophy is that of a servant leader working closely with staff, parents, and community stakeholders to ensure that all students are successful. She believes a strong connection between school, home and community is the foundation for high student achievement.
Ms. Judon is very excited to be serving as the new Butcher-Greene principal and looks forward to a successful school year.
