Thank you for welcoming me!


It is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the new Principal of Queen of Peace Catholic School. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with such a rich tradition of spiritual strength and academic excellence. During these past few weeks, I have had interactions with parents, teachers, students, and parish members. From these conversations, it is clear there is a collaborative environment between all stakeholders to provide the best possible academic and religious experience for our students. I look forward to fostering these relationships and working with teachers and staff to provide a world-class educational experience for each child.


I have been dedicated to the field of education for more than sixteen years with a specific concentration in Title I schools. My most recent administrative experience has been shaped by five years of successful leadership; three years at the middle school level and two years at the elementary level. I am elated to bring my skills as an educational leader to Queen of Peace Catholic School and to work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child’s success. Along with teachers and staff, I will work hard to continue the success established by previous administration by building strong relationships with parents, students, parish members and community partners. We will focus on character and religious education competence, National Standards and Benchmark skills, use of data to inform instruction, consistent implementation of direct instruction strategies to increase students’ achievement, and providing exciting and challenging enrichment opportunities for all students.


All of us at Queen of Peace Catholic School are eager and excited to begin what promises to be a very positive and productive year together! This year we will continue to provide academic experiences for our students that are rigorous, relevant and build relationships. 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 enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun, and nurturing environment.


Please also know that I highly value home/school communication here at Queen of peace Catholic School. It is vital and plays an integral role in each student’s success. Please do not hesitate to contact us if/when the need arises. We will do likewise. We want and encourage our parents to stay in the know about their child’s studies, assignments, assessments, and school activities, as well as other events and happenings.


Again, we welcome you to Queen of Peace Catholic School and to our wonderful, spiritual, professional learning community!


I feel truly blessed to be the instructional leader of such an awesome parish and school community.
