Principal Rima Younes
Welcome to another successful school year at Lowrey School! Please allow me to introduce myself.
I am Mrs. Rima Younes, Principal of Lowrey School. I was honored and privileged to become Lowrey School’s principal in 2010, following 3 years of service as the assistant principal at Lowrey School. My educational career began at Lowrey School as an elementary and middle school teacher for 8 years, prior to my appointment in administration.
I grew up in Dearborn and attended school in the Dearborn Public Schools District, graduating from Fordson High School. I earned an undergraduate and Master’s/ Specialist degree from Eastern and Wayne State Universities with a specialization in academics and leadership.
I additionally went on to get my bilingual endorsement and specialty in curriculum and instruction. These specialty areas inform my leadership and teaching approaches, as I view literacy as the foundation of academic progress. I trained in the 3 year Galileo Project which emphasized administrative leadership and best practices.
I view a collaborative school environment as the key to creating successful teachers and students. I believe in collaboration with parents and community partners are essential to enriching the experiences for all at Lowrey School.
I look forward to working side by side with our entire Professional Learning Community. Our hearts and doors are always open for any concerns or input you may have. Please attend our parent meetings, read our Lowrey School Newsletter, and join our PTA. I wish everyone a safe, peaceful, and successful school year.
