Dear PV Families,

I am honored and humbled to be able to take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Kelly Espinola, and I have the privilege of being the next principal of Parker-Varney Elementary School. I am going into my 18th year with the Manchester School District. In addition, all my schooling was done in Manchester- I am a proud graduate of CHS class of ‘98! For 12 years I was a classroom teacher at various schools within the Manchester School District. In 2014, I moved to Beech as Assistant Principal and then went on to Green Acres for the past year and a half. I am committed to Parker-Varney families, students, and staff. My goal is to see the incoming Kindergarten class graduate from West, as principal of PV, in 2032.


I live with my husband, Bill, and two boys, Billy and Jonathan, in Candia. Billy, 10, is going into 5th grade and is a lacrosse goalie for the Tomahawks and Derry Astros. He also plays football for the Derry Demons. Jonathan, 8, will be entering 3rd, and enjoys playing soccer and baseball! Bill and Billy are Red Sox fans, my son Jonathan and I are Yankee fans! This makes for an interesting baseball season!

Education should be exciting and invigorating. I want each student, family members, and staff member to feel that excitement when they enter the building. Parker-Varney is an innovative school, and I look forward to continue moving our innovative ways forward. Many Parker-Varney staff members have been working since school has been out and have plans to continue their work during the next month. They are committed to making units that help students grow and become confident in their ability to learn. I believe it is an awesome time to be a Parker-Varney Panther!


There are two meet and greets scheduled. The first one is a book reading on July 12th, 6:30pm, at Barnes and Noble in Manchester. The second is on July 26th right here at Parker-Varney! Come to the playground around 6:30pm for popsicles and a visit from the Bookmobile! If you need to reach me, email is best. Please use kespinola@mansd.org and I will get back to you as soon as possible.


This is going to be a great year! I look forward to welcoming your students with open arms!


Your Honored Principal,

Kelly Espinola
