Welcome to University Park Elementary!
I am happy and honored to be your principal! I have worked in the Prince George’s County Public School system for 27 years, first as a classroom teacher, then as a Curriculum and Testing Coordinator, as the assistant principal at Hollywood Elementary, and as the principal of UPES. I am excited to be a part of your fine community, and know that together, we will give your children the best education possible!
My priorities for the upcoming school year will be to ensure that our students achieve at the highest levels. We are prepared to work closely with you to bring out your children’s strengths, as well as help them through any obstacles to learning. We will provide a safe and orderly environment to ensure that learning can take place. It is important that we communicate often. You will receive a bi-weekly newsletter informing you of what is happening at school, upcoming events that are taking place, and community information. Information will also be posted on our school website, as well as links to our school system website and other sites of interest. You can contact me and my staff through phone calls, email, or just stop by. I have an open door policy, and would be glad to meet with you whenever possible! This is your school, and you are always welcome!
