Dear Lusher Families,
I am honored to serve the Lusher community in the upcoming 2023-2024 school year. I am a dedicated wife, mother of 5 boys, and an educator approaching my 26th year of education. My time has been spent in the elementary, middle, and high school settings working with students and teachers to positively impact school culture and student achievement. I started my career in Memphis City Schools and Normandy School District (Alumni). I served as a music educator (K-12) in those school districts. Upon receiving my Masters in Education Administration (2007), I worked as an elementary administrative intern in the Normandy School District. I came to the Riverview Gardens School District to serve as Assistant Principal at Riverview Gardens High School from 2010 to 2020. In the past few years, I have had the privilege to serve as a Summer School H.S. Principal, Lead Assistant Principal, and in the fall of 2019, serving as principal at Lewis and Clark Elementary School, assisting where needed. I am currently a doctoral candidate at Fontbonne University (High Impact Education), where I will graduate in May of 2024. I look forward to using my educational skills and experiences to continue the amazing legacy that Lusher Elementary School has forged. We are in this together, and I am optimistic that our partnership in your child’s education will be fruitful!
Mrs. Tiandra Bland, Ed.S.
Proud Principal of Lusher Elementary
