Meet the Principal

Lathrop leopards logo

Welcome to Lathrop Elementary School!

My name is Penelope El-Azhari, although my school community knows me as Mrs. Penny. I have been a RPS 205 administrator for 18 years, and the principal of Julia Lathrop Elementary for eight years. I have a bachelor's degree in education from the University of Wales, UK and a master's degree in school administration from Lewis University.
