Dear Stafford Elementary School Community,


I am honored to have been selected as the new principal of Stafford Elementary School.  I would like to take this time and introduce myself to you.  I have wanted to work in the Stafford County Public School system for a long time because this is the county where my family and I reside, so I am so excited to be joining the Stafford Elementary School family.    


Coming to Stafford County, I bring 21 years of experience in the field of education.  I have been a classroom teacher in both first and fourth grades, an assistant principal, as well as the principal of Lake Ridge Elementary School for the past 12 years.  During my career in education, my goals have always been to ensure high achievement for students and staff.  I am fortunate to come from a work and home experience were a strong work ethic and high expectations were the norm. 


As a leader of Stafford Elementary, I want to maintain the high level of achievement already acquired by the students, staff, and school community.  We will continue to prepare our students to perform in the highly diverse and technical environment of the twenty-first century.  In order to achieve this objective, it is imperative that we embrace an atmosphere that empowers the talents of both the children and the teaching staff.


Effective communication is one way of achieving the above goals.  I look forward to meeting with staff, students, and parents to discuss concerns or ideas that will continue to move our students toward excellence.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns, I am always happy to help.


Again, I am honored to be a part of this school which has a history of excellence.  I look forward to working with the students, staff, and community who have made Stafford Elementary School so successful.
