Hello Solano Families,

I am honored to return to Osborn as the principal of Solano Elementary School. After serving as the principal of Clarendon Elementary for a decade and then Director of Curriculum and Instruction in the Phoenix Elementary School District, I realized my passion remains at the school level. There is something about working side-by-side with students, educators, families, and the community that fills my bucket EVERY day. I believe that every student can overcome challenges and become a leader in our schools and community through relationships, connection, high expectations, engaging instruction, and rigorous challenges.  All wrapped in JOY!

My first priority is to provide a safe community where students flourish through high-quality learning. When I speak of safety, it means safe physically, academically, emotionally, and socially. We have Tiger Pride in creating a welcoming environment where families and the community want to join us in learning and growing together.  We have an opportunity to build a strong, diverse community where all of our students thrive.  Together, anything is possible! It’s time to build something beautiful together for our students and community. I look forward to meeting you all and can’t wait for an amazing year!   

Tiger Pride, 

Theresa Nickolich
