Hello and WELCOME to  school year 2017 - 2018!


Each school year becomes a wonderful opportunity for us to come together as a community so that each child  entrusted to us flourish and grow. It is an old, perhaps overused adage but it still holds much truth and wisdom: It does take a village to raise a child.


I look forward to another exciting year of learning and new discoveries. Let us be ENERGIZED by a shared belief that EVERY child CAN learn and can become the best they can be, especially when provided the best possible support at home, school and community. As an educator for the past 14 years, I believe that one of my biggest roles is to create opportunities for learning and build skills that will allow each student to be successful not only in the classroom, or at home but in the community as well.


I am here to serve.
