    Principal's Message

    Dear Silver Sands Warriors,

    I am truly honored to be appointed the new principal of Silver Sands Middle School.  I wanted to take some time to share a little information about myself, as I will soon be the person in which you entrust your children on a daily basis. 

    I am a native Floridian that was born and raised in a very small community in North Florida.  My family taught me the value of hard work, dedication, and respect.  I have used these values to guide me in every aspect of my life.  I graduated from the University of Florida with a B.S. degree and Nova Southeastern University with my master’s degree in educational leadership.

    I have been an educator for 19 years in Volusia County.  I have taught at Deltona Middle School and Heritage Middle School.  I was the assistant principal at South Daytona, Silver Sands Middle, and River Springs Middle School.  I was the Principal at Discovery Elementary in Deltona for the past 2 years.

    I will continue relying on the values that I learned as a child to guide me during my principalship at Silver Sands.  As the school’s instructional leader, I will work diligently to increase student achievement.  I am dedicated to identifying problem areas and finding the solutions that will benefit all students.  I will show respect to and earn the respect of every member of the Silver Sands family as we strive to accomplish the goals of improved instructional practices and higher academic achievement.

    This year you will see a few changes taking place as we work together to help students reach their greatest potential. I do understand that change can often be uncomfortable.  I am here to assure you the changes that we will undergo together this school year will be in the best interest of our students.  I offer to everyone my promise that all decisions that are made will be made with careful consideration to the safety, security, and betterment of ALL members of the Warrior Family, but most importantly to the children that we serve.  After all, it is our responsibility to help all our students grow into productive individuals.

    Thank you for taking time to read this short communication; I appreciate your dedication to your child’s education.  I look forward to getting to know each of you as the year progresses, and again, I will always have your child’s best interest in mind and provide them with the best education in Volusia County.
