Principal - Ms. Cynthia Marlowe

       ​Mrs. Marlowe has been appointed as principal at Claude and Stella Parson Elementary School. Previously, she served as the principal at Doris Reed Elementary School for the past two years. Before the principal role at Doris Reed, Mrs. Marlowe led Kit Carson International Baccalaureate Academy Magnet Elementary School as the principal for five years. During her time at Kit Carson, the school almost doubled in size: both regarding student population and student achievement. As a Turnaround Principal, Mrs. Marlowe along with a dedicated team of Teachers and Support Staff were able to turn a failing Title 1 school into a success International Baccalaureate Magnet school with an improvement in state proficiency school in math by 25% and reading by 37%.
       Mrs. Marlowe has served as an educator with the Clark County School District an educator for over 25 years and started her career as a Substitute Instructional Assistant, an Elementary Teacher, and an Assistant Principal. She has been married for 28 years and is the proud mother of two children.
Mrs. Marlowe has served as a mentor to newly appointed Principal's as well as Assistant Principals. Mrs. Marlowe is committed to providing a learning environment where teachers and students feel supported, respected, and empowered to pursue their learning goals successfully.

       Mrs. Marlowe received her Master’s in Leadership from Nova Southeastern University. Mrs. Marlowe received her bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from The University of Nevada Las Vegas University. Mrs. Marlowe is returning to school to pursue a doctoral degree for three reasons: the first being to improve her knowledge and skills to become a more effective instructional leader. She would like to focus on district-wide practices that will assist her in providing a rigorous and engaging education for all students. Also, Mrs. Marlowe plans to teach and prepare teachers new to the profession, as well as teacher leaders at the college level. Mrs. Marlowe has a few research projects she is interested in; the effects of academic achievement and high teacher transiency within a school/school district, a comparison of the principal’s role for minority leaders vs. non-minority leaders, and hiring practices and its effect on student achievement.
       Mrs. Marlowe is looking forward to working with students, parents, staff, and the Parson community. Mrs. Marlowe’s vision is to focus on the following improvement goals: core tier I instruction, social-emotional learning, inclusive practices, and create a climate and culture of collaboration data driven-decisions, family engagement, and Restorative Justice. The following quote expresses her belief in the value of education, and that education is necessary to help shape individuals into who they are personally and as professionals:
                     “The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically.
​                                   Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education.”

                            - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
