Welcome to Lowes Island Elementary School

Lowes Island Learning Leopards,
I am excited and honored to be the Principal at Lowes Island Elementary School! The transition in the middle of a school year is eventful yet rewarding. I was previously the Assistant Principal at Arcola Elementary before joining the Leopard family. I have 9 years of teaching experience in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade from my time spent in Henrico County in Richmond, Virginia. My administrative experiences include resource teacher, Director of Operations and Student Services, and an associate principal.
I grew up in Lancaster, Pennsylvania and visit my family often. I was awarded a Bachelor of Science degree from Marywood University with a concentration in Elementary Education with a minor in special education. I earned my Masters of Education with a concentration in Educational Leadership/Administration from Virginia Commonwealth University, where I am currently finishing up my doctorate in educational leadership.
In my free time I enjoy reading, watching and playing sports, and spending time with my family and friends. My favorite place to unwind is on the beach with a good book in my hand.
I am passionate about education and look forward to working with all of our Leopards! For me, it always starts with relationships! I can’t wait to get to know our community!
Your PROUD Principal,
Ms. Puschak (Push-Jack)
