    Dear Blasdell Families,

    I am honored and excited to be writing this letter of introduction to you as the newly appointed Principal of Blasdell Elementary School.  I am proud to have the opportunity to lead a school with such deep-rooted community commitment to education.  I have been dedicated to the field of education for more than fifteen years, working with a variety of students' ranging in age from Pre-Kindergarten through Eighth Grade.  My most recent administrative experience was at Frontier Middle School where I served as an Assistant Principal for the last four years. I am eager to bring my skills as an educational leader to Blasdell Elementary School and work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child's success.

     Along with the teachers and staff, I will work hard to continue the commitment to success established by Blasdell Elementary School by building strong relationships with parents, students, and community partners.  We will focus on character education initiatives, Standards Based skills, the use of Student Evidence to drive instruction, and to provide consistent implementation of the curriculum with high expectations so that we can continue to increase all levels of student achievement.  As a team, we will work side by side with you to ensure student success.

    All of us at Blasdell Elementary School are thrilled to begin the new school year with your family.  This year is going to be amazing as we continue to provide academic experiences for our students that are relevant, exciting, and supportive in building positive relationships with their peers and teachers as they grow as learners together.  As your Principal, it is important to me that our community thrives and grows as we meet the challenging needs of today, providing our students with educational experiences that promote future success.  My is door is always open and I welcome your input.  Please feel free to call or email me to discuss any concerns you might have throughout the school year.  

    I look forward to working with you to help our students at Blasdell Elementary School have a successful school year!
