I am excited for another great year at Purchase Line Elementary School! For those that do not yet know me, I am originally from Franklin, Pennsylvania. I worked in many different roles throughout my career including Guidance Counselor, High School Assistant Principal, Elementary Principal, and Middle School Principal in neighboring districts. While serving in the various roles, I was able to gain valuable experience in many areas, but especially with incorporating technology within the classroom.
As your principal, communication, honesty, and kindness are among my core values. We must be a team for our students, where all parties are equally invested. At Purchase Line, I am proud to say this is the culture we have created.
Personally, my wife and I are leaders in our church. She is also an elementary teacher. We have four daughters and four dogs (three in which are rescues). We have two guinea pigs, too. We enjoy creating things and visiting Florida! I love the Steelers and grilling, as well.
I continue to look forward to building relationships with Purchase Line families, students, and the entire community. Our families are an integral component to our students’ success and their input and ideas will help move our school in a positive direction. It takes all stakeholders to prepare students for success and parents play a vital role in this process. Therefore, we are committed to enhancing our parent engagement at Purchase Line by welcoming all parents to take part in school events and activities. I invite all families and community members to visit and see firsthand the exciting things happening here.
Please feel free to visit me with any questions or concerns you may have. I look forward to another enriching, positive school year!
Mr. Travis R. Monroe
