Lora Champlain, Principal 

Hello, my name is Lora Champlain and I am the Principal of Dryden Middle School. This is my 25th year working in education and my 7th year with the Dryden Central School District. 

My passion for education comes from working with children. I struggled in school academically and socially, that is why I have always wanted to find ways to help children succeed. In addition, I make it a goal of mine to foster an environment that is welcoming and community-oriented. 

Fun Fact: In my free time I like to watch k-dramas (Korean dramas).
