My Name is Anne Nielsen and I am the Principal at Crystal Springs Elementary.
With over 21 years in education, teaching for 18 years; grades 1st - 6th, I look forward to building strong relationships with staff, students, families and community members. My goal as principal of Crystal Springs is to guide and support our staff and students to reach their highest potential, in a safe and nurturing environment. I believe in the academic and social needs of all students. My goal is to ensure that all children are healthy, happy and safe so that they may grow their brain each and every day.
I have two beautiful children - Savanna (16) and Luke (14). People often say that I treat each child in my school as my own. I believe that a school should function as a family and build a climate of trust and mutual respect.
Hello students, families, and friends of Crystal Springs Elementary. My name is Joey Kolattukudy and I am looking forward to serving as your assistant principal.
Prior to my time in Northshore I worked in South Kitsap School District where I worked as an assistant principal for the last four years, serving twice as interim principal. I most recently split my time between East Port Orchard Elementary and Marcus Whitman Middle schools. Before my time in South Kitsap, I taught elementary and middle school and coached football, basketball, and track on the Flathead Indian Reservation in Montana. I earned my teaching degree in Elementary Education and Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership at the University of Montana.
Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions about our school.
I am excited to join the Crystal Springs family.
