About Dr. Gardner

 

Welcome to Bonaire Elementary School!

I am excited to join you as the principal of Bonaire Elementary School beginning this 2017-2018 school year. Bonaire Elementary is a school filled with rich traditions and has demonstrated academic excellence through the years. I truly believe that all our students are capable of learning and achieving at high levels if provided a positive and nurturing environment rooted in a culture of collaboration. I look forward to working with this community of educators, students, parents, and local community partners to provide our children with the best educational experience possible!
