CORE BELIEFS THAT GUIDE MY LEADERSHIP

  • Our students will only achieve as high as we expect they can achieve.
  • The greatest influence on the academic success of a student is their teacher.
  • Our goal as educators is to take hope and make it a reality.
  • Students are at the forefront of our decision-making.
  • Education is evolving and we as educators must evolve with it.
  • Consistency and systematic thinking are vital in developing and sustaining an effective and efficient community of learners.
  • We are whatever our students need us to be in the moment.
  • Relationships matter.
  • Empathy and accountability work together.
  • It is one thing to not know, but it is another to know and do nothing about it.
  • It takes a village to raise a child.  Collaboration amongst students, staff, families, and community partners is pivotal to the success of our students and our community.
  • Data drives us to make informed decisions and influences the future.
