Dear Nuner Primary Center Families,

Welcome back to the 2016-2017 school year.  I hope you had a restful and relaxing summer and are now eager to begin another exciting year.  

As the new principal, let me take this opportunity to introduce myself, I am Elizabeth Willkom.  For the last 12 years I have lived and worked in Miami, Florida in the public schools as a teacher, instructional leader and administrator.  As a former native of the South Bend community and a graduate of the University of Notre Dame, I am happy to be back home along with my husband and twin sons.

Over the years I have specialized in the areas of special education, curriculum coordination, English as a second language and bridging the achievement gap.  I am fluent in Spanish and have worked and studied abroad in South America throughout the years.  I received my Masters of Science in Education in 2007 and a Specialist in Educational Leadership in 2012.

I, along with teachers and staff, look forward to growing as a Nuner family within our  community with many new initiatives and opportunities for success.



Ms. Elizabeth Willkom
