    I am excited to be on board here at Frederick Douglass High School-an IB world school! I am the Assistant Principal for our A-G Scholars and the 10th grade liaison. I believe that every student deserves a world-class education where they are being encouraged to be inquirers and risk-takers, cultivated to be open-minded and caring, prepared to be knowledgeable communicators and thinkers. Ultimately, I am passionate about educating every student so that they can continue to be principled, balanced and reflective life-long learners. I am honored to serve the Frederick Douglass High School community.
