“It has always been my dream to lead an elementary school that focuses on early childhood education. I loved teaching kindergarten and believe that making an educational impact on students during their early years can set a strong foundation for success, and develop lifelong learners.”

– Kristin Driscoll

Erica Cruz, Assistant Principal

I am honored to join the Goshen community and work alongside passionate educators, committed parents, and talented students. I believe strong relationships are at the heart of a positive school community. My goal is to be a support for staff, students, and families to encourage an environment of collaboration and celebrate the unique talents of every student. Together, we can build a solid foundation to develop a community of lifelong learners and empower our students to reach their full potential.
