I am honored to be joining the Mt. Carmel family as your principal. I could not wish for a better school community to be a part of and cannot wait to begin this journey with you. Educating our children requires a true partnership, and I am committed to joining together with students, staff, parents, and the community to serve the needs of all students to support them in their academic and social growth.
Schools are charged with the important task of ensuring that students are proficient in today’s rigorous academic standards. As Mt. Carmel’s instructional leader, I will guide the faculty’s efforts to always know where each child stands and to problem solve by implementing strategies to continually move them forward. This is a very clear goal, but there is much more involved in creating the conditions in which this is possible; our foundational goal must be to ensure a positive and nurturing school culture that keeps the students and their long-term outcomes at the center of everything we do. This is my main objective as the leader of Mt. Carmel Elementary and my commitment to you.
I believe it is important to think beyond getting students ready for the next grade level. It is necessary for us to think in terms of preparing students for their futures. We will work to instill in students habits of mind that support the development of the self-esteem and self-discipline needed to reach bold goals both academically and personally, learn from setbacks, and continue evolving and adapting, always discovering more capable and confident versions of themselves. By embedding skills such as creativity, communication, collaboration, leadership, and critical thinking into learning activities, we at Mt. Carmel will help our students become equipped to meet the changing demands of life and work in the 21st century.
Our school is full of experienced and passionate teachers who are committed to their students and creating a culture of success. To support that success, parental support is essential, and I invite you to join us as partners in your child’s educational experience. I look forward to our year together, and I thank you for entrusting your child’s education to Mt. Carmel Elementary. Please contact me if I may be of assistance to you.
