As an educational leader it is my belief that we have the responsibility to provide engaging learning opportunities for students through collaboration and work that is focused on 21st century skills.  These opportunities should prepare them to be globally competitive and college or work force ready.   This is achieved by providing a rigorous comprehensive education program in order to meet the diverse needs of our student population.  Students need to engage in purposeful knowledge work using technology as a tool to enhance their learning.  As leaders, students must respect the worth and dignity of every individual while feeling that their work is important.

I am starting my twelfth year as an educational leader with Baltimore County Public Schools.  It is truly an honor to have the opportunity to lead such a wonderful group of faculty and staff.  A staff that is dedicated to designing engaging, learner-centered lessons for all students while maintaining an environment where all students feel respected and safe.

Relay Elementary is a collaborative learning community where life-long learners and responsible leaders are enriched through supportive, caring relationships and authentic challenging experiences.  Parents and community members are critical partners in our journey of educating the leaders tomorrow.  We must commit to being responsible for supporting children in successfully accomplishing their dreams and aspirations.  Always consider what is best for children based upon their uniqueness, personality, and learning style.  I look forward to working with students, staff, parents and community members as we work toward the common goal of increasing student achievement.
