Traci Costlow, Principal

Story image 1_0

It is an honor and privilege to serve as the Principal at Jefferson Elementary for my second year. I am excited to be a part of North Platte Public Schools where the strong support of the community, school board and staff is so evident, valuable, and appreciated.

I grew up in Lexington and moved to Plattsmouth in high school. I attended Texas Christian University for both undergrad and graduate school, earning a Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education with a minor in Speech Communication. After receiving my Masters in Elementary Administration I continued to reside in Texas. Following teaching Pre-K, Kindergarten, Fourth and Fifth grades, I became an administrator and have spent thirteen years as a Principal and Assistant Principal in Pre-K through 12th grades.

My family and I have relocated to North Platte from Texas and are thrilled to be making North Platte our home. Carter and Chloe are twins and will be in second grade at Jefferson this year.

At Jefferson we are dedicated to preparing every student for success while working in collaboration with families, businesses and community members. We believe that all students can achieve!
