Welcome to Lamberton School, where we teach our students to ROAR!

Message from Principal Osei

Dear Lamberton Elementary School Community,

With great pleasure, I write this letter to you as the incoming Principal of Lamberton Elementary School. I am excited about joining this wonderful school community and look forward to beginning the school year together on August 29th.

I come to Lamberton with 16 years of experience as an educator serving as a literacy tutor, teacher, Assistant Principal, and Principal. I am a proud product of the School District of Philadelphia, graduating from Germantown-Lankenau High School. I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Communications from Howard University, a Master of Divinity from Virginia Union University, and a Master of Arts in Teaching from Trinity University. I am currently pursuing a doctorate in education at the University of Pennsylvania.

Although my first love is teaching, working alongside teachers to support students in their academic and social growth is a joy. I firmly believe every child can achieve academic and social success, and I am committed to working with the Lamberton community to foster supportive learning environments for ALL students.

As summer comes to a close, I would like to offer opportunities and spaces for us to chat and learn about each other. The administrative team and I will host an in-person meet and greet for Lamberton families on August 17th from 1:30 PM to 2:30 PM.

I look forward to meeting you and celebrating our collective successes during the 2022-2023 school year!


Principal Osei
