New Lincoln-Thomson Elementary School Principal
MF 2016Superintendent Catherine Latham is pleased to announce the selection of Ms. Mary Foster as the new principal of the Lincoln-Thomson Elementary School. Ms. Foster is currently the Program Specialist at Callahan Elementary School.

She has been involved in elementary education for over twenty-one years and has spent seventeen years at Lincoln-Thomson as a kindergarten and first grade teacher, librarian, curriculum and instruction teacher, English Language Arts/Mathematics Specialist and Acting Principal.
Ms. Foster received a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Early Childhood Education and a Master of Education degree with a concentration in Library Media Studies, both from Salem State College.  She received a Certificate of Advanced Study of Education from the Northeast Consortium’s Merrimack Education Center and received Principal/Assistant Principal licensure.  She also holds certification as a Wilson Language teacher.
Ms. Foster has experience in standards-based curriculum planning, data analysis, common assessment development, the teacher evaluation system, and the design and scheduling of school based professional development.  She has served as a member of School Improvement Planning teams and is intimately familiar with both the Massachusetts State Frameworks and the district curriculum and instruction programs that are designed to support those Frameworks.
Ms. Foster will bring extensive elementary experience to her new position and, because of her long term association with the Lincoln-Thomson Elementary School, will provide a seamless transition as long-term Principal Helen Mihos retires after thirty-seven years with the Lynn Public Schools.  Ms. Foster is a long time Lynn resident and a graduate of Lynn Classical High School.  She is the mother of two boys who also attended the Lynn Public Schools
