Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. LaBurn

I joined the Pierce family in 2006 as the Assistant Principal.  Before becoming an administrator I was a classroom teacher for ten years.   I taught first grade in Redford Union School district  for four years.  Then I taught kindergarten, first, second and fourth grades in South Lyon Community School.   This teaching experience has helped me to better understand the developmental levels of all elementary age students.   

My position at Pierce is challenging and fun.   Every day I strive to provide opportunities and support for students and staff to grow.  As an educator, I believe that I have a profound influence on how the children in my care view themselves, each other and the world.  This guides the words I chose and the way I act every day.  Here are some beliefs that guide me:

  • Live my values, be ethical
  • Look for the positive in situations, have fun- laugh
  • Set the pace through my expectations and example
  • Provide inspiration and vision for the future
  • Always put children first
  • Be present

 It is an honor and a privilege to work in such an amazing community.
