Q: What do you love about your career?
A: Seeing the positive impact your decisions and actions have on students’ learning and development is incredibly rewarding. Whether it’s implementing innovative teaching methods, creating a supportive school environment or celebrating student achievements, knowing that you’re making a difference in their lives is fulfilling. Building strong relationships with students, teachers, parents and the community is a significant aspect of being an elementary principal.

The connections you form, the trust you build and the collaboration you foster contribute to a sense of belonging and support within the school community. I am the founding principal and have so much to celebrate. I love my job and the connections that I make on a daily basis as we continue to grow and foster a great learning community.
