From the Principal

My name is Sofia Papastamatis and it is with great excitement that I introduce myself as the new principal of Crissman Elementary. Crissman Elementary has a rich history of academic excellence that is a direct result of the partnership between the staff, parents and community. I look forward to joining this wonderful community and working with you as we continue our journey of educational excellence.

I am proud to say I am a Utica Community Schools graduate and educator. I graduated from Eisenhower High School and earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education with a language arts and math endorsement from Oakland University. My love of learning and reading led me to earn a Masters of Arts Degree in Reading and Language Arts from Oakland University. I then went on to complete my Educational Specialist Degree in Administration from Oakland University.
