Principal’s Welcome Message - SY 19-20

July 30, 2019

Greetings Young Achievers Community,

On behalf of our entire staff, I would like to formally welcome you to the 2019-2020 school year!  It is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the newly appointed Principal of Young Achievers Science and Math K-8 Pilot  School. I have been dedicated to the field of education for more than two decades. I have worked with a variety of scholars' ranging in age from kindergarten through and middle school, including general and special education settings.  My most recent administrative experience was at the James P. Timilty Middle School where I served as Principal. I am excited and eager to bring my skills as an educational leader back to YA and work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child's accomplishments.

Along with the teachers and staff, I will work hard to continue the legacy of success established by Young Achievers by building strong relationships with parents, scholars and community partners to ensure our school is a place where our stakeholders feel welcomed, supported and appreciated.  We will focus on social emotional learning, Common Core skills, the use of data to drive instruction, and to provide consistent implementation of the curriculum in a rigorous manner so that we can continue to increase all of the scholars' achievement.

All of us at Young Achievers are thrilled to begin the year, anew.  This year is going to be a commitment forward as we work diligently to provide academic experiences for our scholars that are rigorous, relevant, and help them build relationships while making real-world connections. 

As your new Principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors-teachers, scholars and parents-are excited to be here!  This attitude enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun, and nurturing environment. My door is always open and I welcome your input.  Please feel free to stop in, call or email me to discuss any questions, suggestions, or concerns you might have throughout the school year. The amazing Young Achievers staff and I feel privileged to be a part of this school community. We thank you for your support and look forward to school year of growth!
