    A message from Assistant Principal, Kelly Winter:

    Hello, and welcome to the new school year!  I am excited to become part of the Lake School community!  A little about myself: I was born in South Lake Tahoe and have lived in or near the lake for most of my life.  I spent the last 19 years at Douglas High School as a math teacher, department chairperson, and leadership team member among other duties.  I have a master's degree in Mathematics Education and another in Educational Leadership, and was the DCSD Distinguished Secondary Educator for 2020-21.  I have two children in DCSD.  Connor is a senior at DHS and Alex is an 8th grader at CVMS.  I am a competitive endurance runner and OCR athlete, and spend most of my free time running on trails around Lake Tahoe.  Being an administrator in the place that brings me peace and energy is incredibly exciting!
