Jennifer Lahey

Principal, San Lorenzo Valley Elementary

Welcome to San Lorenzo Elementary School! SLV is such an amazing place! I am honored to be a part of this dynamic school and look forward to an extraordinary year characterized by student engagement, academic achievement, and an authentic learning experience. I am here to support you, and work with you, as we strive to make SLV Elementary School the best school imaginable.


I have had the privilege of working in SLVUSD for twenty-five years at various sites within the district and have a strong familiarity, respect, and admiration of our great staff and learning community. You may find it interesting to know that I worked as a Resource Specialist at San Lorenzo Valley Elementary School at the very start of my career in the district. Over the years, I’ve also taught classes in math, English, art, and AVID, and am thrilled to be in my third year as Principal of SLE. Additionally, my husband, Rob, is a math teacher at SLVHS and my two daughters are students in the district.  My family is strongly connected to our community.


People who know me would probably describe me as hard working, energetic, caring and enthusiastic.  I am deeply committed to ensuring that all San Lorenzo Valley Elementary School students succeed and are exposed to exceptional learning experiences that help prepare them for the future. I am here to support and work with you as we strive to make SLE the best elementary school imaginable.
