   I am very much looking forward to this school year.  I am coming to Lakelands Park Middle School from the Office of the Chief Academic Officer in central office.  I am very excited to be returning to a school and even more thrilled to be joining the tremendous learning community of LPMS.  This will be my 18th year in MCPS and I truly hope that my wide range of experiences will enhance the teaching and learning at LPMS.  I am a huge believer in learning that is personalized, student centered, and designed to meet the needs of all students.  In this vision for instruction, I see skilled teachers utilizing technology, student voice, student choice, and culturally relevant instructional practices.  I look forward to a collaboration with staff, families, and community to enhance the excellent traditions of LPMS.   


     I am excited to join the amazing team at Lakelands Park Middle School. I am committed to a partnership with staff, students, parents, and community members to promote a life-long enthusiasm for learning and a personal investment in education. I believe all students can be successful despite any barriers that get in the way. I will support students in recognizing their potential and encourage them to always strive for their personal best. I will reassure a safe and positive learning environment where students can achieve academic, college and career readiness, and social-emotional growth. I am an intentional educator who has HOPE: Have Only Positive Expectations!
