Tricia M. Osborne
Elementary/Middle School Principal



Welcome to the Madison Academy Team! I would like to introduce myself to those of you who do not know me. My name is Tricia Osborne and I am honored to have the opportunity to serve the families of Madison and make this year a successful academic and personal experience for you and your child(ren).
   
 This will begin my 14th year at Madison Academy. For seven years, I was in the classroom instructing our wonderful kindergarten students. For three years, I had the privilege of working with all the elementary and middle school students as the School Dean, Testing Coordinator, Homeless Liaison, and the Preschool Director.  This is my fourth year as the Elementary/Middle School Principal. I earned my Bachelor's of Science in Education from Central Michigan University and also hold a Master’s Degree in Early Education from the University of Michigan Flint and a School Administration Graduate Certificate from Eastern Michigan University.
   
 On a personal note, I have been married to my wonderful husband, Dennis for eleven years.  I have three absolutely beautiful daughters. Lilian is 11 and Samantha is 8, and Allison turned three in  November.  Lilian is in Sixth Grade and loves to play basketball,  softball, and volleyball.  Samantha is in Third Grade. She loves to play Soccer and softball. Allison loves playing outside, making projects and swimming.

 Thank you for choosing Madison! I enjoy working in the educational field and hope to continue to make an impact in children’s lives for years to come. I am a true believer that the success of each student depends on a partnership between school and home.  If you have any questions, concerns, and/or ideas please feel free to contact me.
