Principal

Greeting new families each year at “Meet the Teacher Night” is always a pleasure, especially for
principals! Did you get to meet Mrs. Landis that evening? Who really is this principal of Locust Grove?
Let’s get to meet her. This year marks Amy Landis's 24th year as an educator. She was a math teacher
for the first twenty years of her career and for the last 4 has been an administrator. Did you know that
teaching and administration runs in her family? Her sister, Felicia, is a special education teacher, and
her other two sisters, Lori and Deanna, are assistant principals.

 

Mrs. Landis is a 1990 graduate of William Penn Sr. High School, a 1994 graduate of Shippensburg University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Secondary Mathematics Education, and has a Master’s Degree from University of Scranton in Educational Administration.  After graduating from Shippensburg, she married her husband, Thom Landis (a 1989 William Penn graduate and US Naval Academy graduate) and began her life as a Navy wife.  This journey resulted in her teaching in many places, such as Newport RI, Norfolk VA, Gulfport MS, and Dahlgren VA.  She also lived for a short period of time in Naples Italy.  Mrs. Landis took 8 years off from teaching to be a stay at home mom, and has two sons and a daughter ranging in age from 16 to 10.  After the 8 year break, Mrs. Landis returned to her home district of York City as a math teacher at Edgar Fahs Smith and then at William Penn.  As the unfortunate result of furloughs, she spent her last two years of teaching at Northern York Middle School prior to returning again to York City as an administrator, where she was the Assistant Principal of Jackson K-8 school for two years.  Mrs. Landis is also in the process of obtaining her doctorate degree in Transformational Leadership from Concordia University.  She enjoys vacationing with her family, target shooting, music, and Sudoku and Ken Ken puzzles.  This is Mrs. Landis’s first year as the principal of Locust Grove Elementary School.  Last year, she was the assistant principal of Red Lion Junior High School.  She has always been passionate about education and has continuously strived to make a difference in the lives of children. She believes that she has been able to positively impact children in her career as an educator and will continue to do so with the support of the amazing parents and staff of Locust Grove Elementary School. Together the Locust Grove Community will continue to make a difference in the lives of their children!
