Dr. Lori Craig

    Welcome to Shaw VPA Elementary School.  I am Dr. Lori Craig, Principal.  My career in education started over 20 years ago as a middle school math teacher.  I taught for 12 years and have had many administration positions since.   I have a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education with a focus in middle school math, a Master's Degree in Educational Administration, and an Ed. D in Educational Leadership.  





    We are getting closer to the start of school, and we are SO excited! We hope you are getting excited and ready, too! Emails and Dojo notifications from us will always be for everyone, whether your family chose an Instructional Support Center (ISC) or Edmentum. Reading these details is an important part of our communication and partnership right now. Please help us...help you!
