    Greetings Oaklands Elementary Staff and Community,

    I am honored to have the opportunity to serve as the newly appointed principal of Oaklands Elementary School, a school with such committed educators, supportive families and outstanding students! My passion for education and supporting the success of all students has been shaped over the last fifteen years as as Assistant Principal, Mentor, Instructional Leader, Professional Development Lead Teacher and Classroom Teacher.

    My vision is to create a community of lifelong learners who are forward thinkers and leaders that will ultimately have a positive impact on the world. Together, we will continue to maintain an engaging environment where students have a passion for learning, are encouraged to be critical thinkers, and have a belief that they can and will be successful. As a school community, we will continue the legacy of academic achievement established at Oaklands Elementary School. Through partnering with parents, collaborating with community stakeholders, coupled with supporting a nurturing, committed staff, students will achieve greatness!

    I am eager and excited to begin what promises to be the best year ever. As your principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors, teachers, students and parents, are excited to be here! This attitude will enable us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun, and nurturing environment. Over the next several months, it will bemy priority to meet our school community: staff members, students, family members, and community members. I look forward to meeting everyone!
