    Michelle Pavlik


    Welcome to what I know is going to be an extraordinary school year! My name is Michelle Pavlik, and I am honored to be joining Grayhawk Elementary as your new principal. Grayhawk has a reputation for outstanding teachers as well as a very supportive community.


    While I am new to Grayhawk, I am not new to the Paradise Valley School District.  I began my professional career in 1994 as an elementary teacher. Over the years I have taught grades kindergarten through sixth.  I spent one year at Cactus View Elementary as the instructional coach and transitioned into administration in 2013 where I served as assistant principal at Sonoran Sky Elementary.  I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education, and a Master of Education degree at Northern Arizona University.
    I grew up in a small town in New Mexico. I come from a long line of educators where I benefitted from a quality public education. As a matter of fact, my mom was one of my teachers during junior high school, and my uncle and father also had the "pleasure" of my company during my high school years. Needless to say, I still graduated. I married my husband, John and moved to the Phoenix area in 1992. I have two children, a son and daughter, both students in our neighborhood high 
    As your new principal, it is my goal to be visible and available to our community.  Communication is most vital to my role in serving as an effective administrator.  Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with ideas, concerns or suggestions.  I look forward to meeting and building strong relationships with each and every one of you.
