Robbinsdale Area Schools


Welcome to Neill Elementary where we have a respectful, welcoming, and engaging learning environment for all students, where everyone can feel the love. Teachers, staff, and families have high expectations for students in both academic achievement and behavior.

At Neill, we believe in all our students, strive to help them belong, and encourage them to become anything they want to be.  We celebrate our successes monthly during our Roadrunner Rallies.  We embrace all learners and work to meet each student's needs -academically, socially and emotionally. 

I have been in education for 23 years.  This is my 17th year with Robbinsdale Area Schools, and 4th at Neill. I believe in developing a school culture where all students feel welcome by seeing reflections of themselves as well as windows into other cultures. I believe in developing a strong connection between the home and school, and look forward to partnering with you to achieve success for your student.  Reach out anytime.
