Principal's Message

Dear Mark Twain Families,


Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! I am honored to have been selected as the new leader at Mark Twain. Over the past 22 years, I have been fortunate to be a part of making a difference in the lives of my students and families as a special education teacher and administrator. I am excited for the opportunity to work with the students, staff, and families at Mark Twain to build upon the great work and successes that have already been set in place.


I am not only looking forward to working with your students and the staff but also the opportunity for the work we will do together. Fostering a collaborative connection between home and school is a passion of mine. It is this collaboration and communication between home and school that facilitates the success of our students. “Alone we can do so little; Together we can do so much” Helen Keller


Once again, I am thankful to have the opportunity to bring all that I have learned and my experience with me to your wonderful community. Please know that I always welcome any suggestions, comments or concerns you may have to share. My door is always open.


Let’s Go Warriors!!!



Most sincerely,


Tricia Chinn
