Sue Lehna takes a selfie with a student

I have had the good fortune of serving as an educator in multiple capacities since 1988. I originally served as a physical education specialist and and adapted physical education specialist for students in pre - 12th grade. I began my administrative career in 2004 serving as the Dean at Lincoln Park Elementary and Middle School (K-8) for 3 years when I moved to Central High School as the Activities Director and Assistant Principal. I accepted the principal position at Homecroft Elementary in 2010 and then served as the Principal of Lester Park Elementary from 202013 - 2022. As the current Principal of Ordean East Middle School, I feel fortunate to have served students across our district for 35 years.

Hands down, my favorite parts of being an educator are the incredible students, their supportive families, and our outstanding staff! It has been my greatest honor to serve as a principal for the Duluth Public Schools!
