About Us

 

Principal's Message:

Hello, Lincoln Elementary Community.  I am Jileen Mortensen, and will be your new principal.  I am so excited to be here at Lincoln, and look forward to a great school year with each of you.

I am originally from Morgan, Utah, and lived there for most of my childhood and adult life.  I moved to Ogden about 10 years ago, and enjoy living here.  I am the mother of 4 children, and grandmother of 5.  Between job and family, I stay busy, but I enjoy reading, writing books, and traveling in my spare time.  I was recently the principal at Horace Mann.  I have also been an Instructional Coach and a teacher for Ogden School District at Lewis Elementary, James Madison Elementary, and Horace Mann Elementary.  I love working in Ogden, and am excited for a new adventure here.

We are adopting a new vision statement here at Lincoln, and love the forward focus it will bring for us.  It is: Lincoln Elementary will elevate our students by building a community that gives every student a pathway to become successful socially, emotionally, and academically.

We will set our goals and work hard to achieve this vision.

We also are elevating the norms that our teachers use to include all members of Lincoln's community: families, staff, and especially students.  These norms are the expectations that we will try to live by.  They are as follows: 

 1. We have a growth mindset and support each other in our learning processes.

2. We chose to be here and we want to be here!

3. We speak positively about our peers, students, school and community.

We have set some great goals with action steps to improve reading and mathematics achievement as well as emotional regulation. Watch for news about how we are improving in these areas.

Again, it is great to be a part of this Lincoln community, and I look forward to working with you!

Lincoln Vision

Lincoln Elementary will be the highest achieving elementary school in the Ogden School District. We will achieve this by becoming the best instructors of literacy and mathematics resulting in the highest level of learning.
