As the new principal of SMS, I would like to officially welcome you to the 2021-2022 school year. We have endured a recent stretch of history unlike any other, hopefully, you have found some time to enjoy all the joy that normally comes with summer vacation. While last school year was far from normal, we are excited to welcome all students back through our doors for this upcoming year.
I am beyond thrilled and honored to be rejoining the Seahawk team. I know that our community is filled with students, families, teachers, and other members who are committed to the serious business of education. As I have reintroduced myself to the Seahawk community, I have been consistently impressed with the pride and the commitment to excellence. I share these values and am excited to take on the task of helping each student reach their full potential.
This is my fifteenth year in education, over this time I have served as a teacher and administrator in the City of Pittsburgh, Henrico County and most recently as associate principal of G.W. Carver Middle School here in Chesterfield County. Over the course of my career, I have learned that education is a lifelong process and thus, I challenge each member of the extended Seahawk community to never stop learning. To achieve this we will help each student obtain the skills and motivation necessary to be successful on whatever path they choose after leaving the Salem Church nest.
I look forward to learning with you and from you this year. Our team will continue to review and develop the educational program so that we can support the needs of every child, every day at Salem Church Middle School. Together with our flock, the SMS team and your family, will ensure that all students are safe and soaring to greater heights.
Please know that my door is always open to you and, of course, to your child. I look forward to getting to know your family and celebrating the many successes that await us this year.
