My Approach to Leadership
I have been an educator since 2000. I believe in maintaining
a positive mindset, creating partnerships with a purpose, and
always striving for significant outcomes. I am a task master, a closer.
When you work with me, you should expect a collaborative
"All In Team" approach and transparency & consistency.
My motto is "Lead by Example, while encouraging others
to strive for excellence. I genuinely believe that education
is life changing for students, which is why what we
do and don't do matters."
