Dear Roosevelt Community,
It is with great honor that I send this email as incoming principal of Roosevelt Middle School. I can already tell that Roosevelt is a unique and special place. I am incredibly excited to serve our community along with the excellent staff already in place in order to provide an outstanding education to our students. I value collaboration, hard work, and love for children, and look forward to bringing my passion for working with students to school everyday.
I was born and raised outside of Washington, DC, in Maryland. I grew up with educators and was always drawn to teaching. I started out as a substitute aide for a student with special needs in an elementary school, and realized how much fun it is to be in a classroom working with students. After a two year position at a computer company, I found my way back to education, where I spent over eleven years as a math teacher, mostly at University City High School, and then over five years as an assistant principal at Canyon Crest Academy.
I want to join you in continuing to help our school improve. I have heard how great our Friends of Roosevelt (RooFriends) group is at supporting our students and staff, and I look forward to spending time with as many parents as possible to gain perspective and share ideas. Please keep an eye out for a future coffee with the principal.
Looking forward to meeting you all.
Go Rough Riders!
Roosevelt Middle School
