"I believe that all children can learn.
I believe that all children are motivated to learn.
I believe that it is our moral imperative to help them to learn."

"I am committed to helping inspire and empower life-long learners who possess the mindset and skills to thrive in a changing world."
Once a month, Mrs. Spencer conducts a "Chat with the Principal" to convey information to parents and community members and to answer any general questions about Marshall Lane.
