Message from Executive Director & Elementary Principal, Dr. Myong ‘Moo’ Eiselstein

Dear St. Paul Community,

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! I am excited to serve as the Executive Director and Elementary Principal this year. This is my 9th year with the school. As I’ve mentioned before: being a St. Paul Eagle has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I am confident that you will feel at home this year as we work together to create an engaging, educational and empowering community for our learners.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you need assistance. Again, thank you for choosing our school community!
