Greetings Laburnum Families,
I am proud to serve as principal of Laburnum Elementary School. Last year presented many challenges to us as a school community. However, it was amazing to see the resilience demonstrated by our students, staff, and families. I am certain that during the 2021-22 school year we will only get stronger.
My personal journey into education began as a young girl growing up in Bronx, New York, where I began to develop my passion for helping others. Hampton University was the next stop on that journey where I earned my Bachelors of Arts in Political Science. I earned my Masters in Teaching from Trinity University located in our nation’s capital, Washington D.C. while working as a special education teacher. Eventually my path led me to Chesterfield, Virginia where I continued to teach special education and ultimately earned a Post Master’s Certification in Administration and Supervision from Virginia Commonwealth University.
In addition to being a classroom teacher, I’ve served as a program coordinator for a special education program, assistant principal, and principal for Chesterfield County Public Schools. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of my career and look forward to sharing this new chapter with the Laburnum community.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my children, ages 7 and 13, as well as my husband. We like to enjoy the simple things in life such as spending time outside and playing board games. My hobbies include reading, working out, and relaxing with family and friends.
I believe that it takes a village to raise a child and I thank you for allowing me a to be a part of the Laburnum village. Please know that my door is always open and I encourage you to reach out to me to share your ideas, thoughts, or concerns. We are in this together to support our students in every aspect of their development.
Yours in Education,
Nicole T. Boone
