Dear Brookhaven Elementary School Students, Families, and Community Partners:
I am extremely excited to return to the Brookhaven community as the principal for the 2017–2018 school year. As principal, my mission is to create a school environment where every student can continue to receive a rigorous, engaging and high-quality educational experience and one in which every teacher is equipped with the tools and support to provide students with a strong, rich and rewarding learning experience that will result in their academic success.
It is an honor to work with the Brookhaven community where I proudly served as an assistant principal for four years. My most recent administrative assignment has been as principal intern at Weller Road Elementary School. I began my teaching career within Montgomery County Public Schools in 2000, where I spent eleven years as a classroom teacher followed by three years in the role of math content coach.
As the proud parent of two school aged children, ages 4 and 12, I recognize the importance of a strong home/school connection. Parents and guardians are every child’s first teacher. I believe that if we partner together we will build a positive parent-teacher relationship that contributes to your child’s academic, social, and emotional needs being met in their school learning community.
The success of each child will continue to be Brookhaven’s main priority under my leadership. This success can only be achieved through a collaborative environment. I look forward to working very closely with Brookhaven’s leadership team and Ms. Cheryl L. Smith, Director of School Support and Improvement of Elementary Schools, in the Office of School Support and Improvement, to ensure that we are prepared for the upcoming school year. The strong foundation of excellence that exists at Brookhaven Elementary School is one that I know first-hand and one that I consider a great privilege to be trusted to build upon.
Thank you for the opportunity to serve the Brookhaven Bobcats family in this capacity. I encourage you to stop in and introduce yourself, as my door is always open and I am here to support you in any way possible.
