I am excited to start the 2022-2023 school year alongside of you. Students deserve a quality education in a safe environment and that will be my focus. We will begin the year each day having a community meeting in the gym at 8:50am. Students will be eating breakfast in the cafeteria and then entering the gym to read a book before 8:50. Students are tardy if they are not in the gym by 8:50.
I will have a Principal’s bulletin board to highlight writing this year. Each quarter teachers will submit the best writing sample from their classroom and one sample will be chosen from each grade level to be displayed on the bulletin board just past the office.
I am starting my 27th year in education. I am originally from Greentown, Indiana and currently live across the state line in New Haven. I attended Ball State University and the University of West Georgia. I have taught all elementary grade levels, intervention, been an instructional coach and assistant principal. I enjoy being at the lake, playing cards, and often golf at Pleasant Valley.
It is my belief that leadership truly revolves around one’s relationship with others. People will never truly follow those they do not trust to take care of them. I strive to be a servant leader.
In my first year at Grover Hill, I plan on building relationships that will support growth.
