Welcome! I am delighted to serve as the principal of the Pennsylvania Avenue School, where “STARS are on the Horizon!” My first priority is always what is in the best interest of the students. My goal is to promote academic excellence and continuous school improvement in a safe, learning environment. At the Pennsylvania Avenue School, we will Strive for Excellence Everyday in Every Way! Education is an ongoing and fascinating journey. I will strive to provide the leadership that will enable all stakeholders to realize the benefits of this journey. By working together, it is our goal to produce a learning environment that is exciting, innovative and creative for our students. It is our intention for each of our students to leave Pennsylvania Avenue School equipped with critical thinking skills and empowered with a love of learning.
We are working hard to become teams of educators who work together to provide strategic support for each student's success. We look forward to working with families in order to give each child the best educational experience possible.
I look forward to our Students & Teachers Achieving Rigor & Success. We are “STARS on the Horizon” at Pennsylvania Avenue School!!!
