Mrs. Fluker

Greetings, Carpenter Families and Community Members,

I am thrilled to serve as the Interim Principal of our Carpenter Elementary! I have been part of the Ann Arbor Public Schools (AAPS) since 2011. I have journeyed through AAPS as a Teacher, an Intervention Specialist, an Assistant Principal, and now I am humbled to serve as an Interim Principal. These experiences have taken me across K-12 here in the district.

I’m proud to have cultivated healthy, loving, lasting, and dependable relationships throughout the community in my previous roles and I look forward to working collaboratively with the staff, students, and families to support the growth of successful and confident scholars in my new role. I continue to be excited by the passionate and dedicated people I have met, the focused commitment to student success, and the tradition of excellence and the culture of high expectations.

In my personal life, I am a proud wife and mother of three sons. My sons are very active student athletes who attend AAPS. I bring the love for my own children to work with me daily as I work with yours. You can trust that I will always do what is best for children, as I would want someone to do for mine!

It is a privilege to lead this learning community during a time of incredible change and tremendous possibilities. I am honored to fill in for Mr. Johnson until his return back to Carpenter! I look forward to partnering with you all as we move forward out of love, honor and dignity for the Carpenter community.
