Belief

I believe educators are responsible for providing an environment that allows learning to take place. This means the schools must be safe, orderly, well-funded, and smoothly run. Opportunities must exist for students to excel. I believe the schools are "owned" by the community. This means that all stakeholders have a voice in the education of our children. As principal, I must develop a vision that combines the viewpoints of all stakeholders and presents a focused vision and direction for our school.
