I am humbled to be a leader in this dynamic community. I look forward to building a positive, transparent, and trusting relationship with all members.
I am dedicated and very passionate about education, especially in the middle school years. I have been an educator for 22 years with 15 of those years spent teaching middle school math. In addition, for the past 7 years, as an Instructional Support Leader with Chicago Public Schools, I have supported administrators at 3 middle schools. I understand the unique needs of adolescents not only academically, but socially as well. The middle school years are a critical time of transition, moving from an elementary experience and preparing for the bigger challenges of high school, college, and career. I strive to work collaboratively to meet our students’ needs in order to shape their learning, curiosity and drive.
As we open our doors to in-person learning this year, I want to assure you that I will follow all district guidelines to keep our students and staff safe. I know this will be an adjustment for students, as many will be entering the building for the first time. I will ensure their return is to a welcoming, supportive, and positive environment.
My commitment to all stakeholders is to listen, learn, and reflect. It is my intention to build strong relationships within the school and with parents and community members so that we can work together to advance the achievement of all students at Forest Park Middle School.
