A message from our Director

"Over the course of 12 years, my career in education has been marked by a rich tapestry of roles, each contributing to my depth of knowledge and proficiency in fostering academic growth and support.

Beginning as a dedicated educator, I took on the responsibility of guiding and mentoring students while designing comprehensive lesson plans that engaged and inspired active learning. This experience further refined my instructional strategies.

My role with exceptional children, helped me to develop a nuanced understanding of individualized teaching methods to cater to diverse learning needs.

My tenure as a Reading Interventionist allowed me to specialize in literacy development, implementing targeted interventions to enhance reading skills among students facing challenges. I implemented research based programs and personalized approaches that significantly improved student comprehension and fluency.

Stepping into the role of a Media Coordinator, I leveraged technology and various media resources to create an enriched learning environment. I facilitated access to diverse educational materials, integrated multimedia into the curriculum, while empowering students and staff with valuable resources for learning and research.

Throughout my career, my passion for fostering an inclusive and engaging learning environment for students, coupled with my hands-on experience across multiple educational roles, continues to be the driving force behind my dedication to the field of education."
