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.
