     Ms. JoLea Behrens

     My name is JoLea Behrens and it is my sincere honor to be an Assistant Principal at Northshore since 2017. I am excited to be a part of such an amazing team of teachers, students, families and administrators here at Northshore. It is a pleasure to serve our learning community and contribute to a successful school year in every way that I can.

     At Northshore, our staff and administrative team hold the highest standards for all students, while providing a safe and loving environment. We value high expectations for responsibility, respect, and integrity that create a positive atmosphere that promotes both student growth academically and socially.

     As a teacher, I thoroughly enjoyed teaching elementary, middle, and college level classes. I have been fortunate to be an educator in several states: Tennessee, Kentucky, Virginia, and New York. It has been a joy and I must say life is pretty sweet with friends who really are family here at Northshore. 

    I look forward to collaborating with our dedicated staff, families, and administrative team to help provide the best educational experience for all of our students. I am blessed with the opportunity to be a part of the Northshore family!
