I am honored and excited to be the next principal of Park Ave Elementary! As you know, Park Avenue is a wonderful school with a rich history and a dedicated staff. I am privileged to be joining such a wonderful community and I look forward to getting to know each of you and your families! Every student who walks through our doors has the potential to achieve great thing and my responsibility and mission is to ensure that each student is provided every opportunity to do so. Our teachers do an amazing job of providing high quality instruction to our students. I look forward to collaborating with them to make certain that they have every resource necessary for our students to be successful and to find joy in learning.
Being available and accessible to our school community is incredibly important to me. I would love for each member of our community to feel comfortable reaching out to me in whatever method is most convenient and comfortable. Whether you prefer to call, text, email, or chat with me at drop off or pick up, please feel free to reach out to me. I also want our families to feel comfortable and encouraged to participate in our programs, meetings like Site Council, ELAC, and our Parent and Teacher Organization (PAPTO). What makes Park Avenue so special is the community. We want our community to be active members of our students’ education.
I believe in our school goal of educating students with an emphasis on developing gains for our English Learners. I can think of no better way to do that than by celebrating our students’ cultures. Speaking Spanish or any other language will be celebrated because it is an asset for our students. I will make every effort to support diverse learning opportunities for our students that will motivate them and excite them to come to school every day.
I look forward to working with you to ensure that Park Avenue continues to be a school you can be proud to send your child.
