Welcome back to school!
I would like to express my pleasure and excitement in being appointed principal of Mountainview Elementary School. I am aware of the work that has been done by the departing principal, Miss Miller, and I know that she will be missed by the school and the community. We wish her all the best in her new position.
I believe that the skills I have acquired in my years as an educator and administrator will serve me well in my new position. I began my career at the Douglas Hospital as a teacher and remained there for 11 years. I moved to Woodland Elementary school and spent the next 15 years working with special needs students and students in grade 4 and 6. I moved to Riverdale High School where I was a resource teacher for 2 years. My next challenge was being appointed vice principal at Howard S. Billings High School, where I remained for 4 years. From there, I moved to Genesis Elementary school where I remained as principal for 5 years. These varied experiences have allowed me to acquire skills that I hope to contribute to Mountainview.
I believe that the community plays an important part in the success of a school. The partnership between staff members and parents helps to enrich the academic success of the students. We need to work together to ensure that all possible resources are available to help students succeed. I look forward to working with all our partners in ensuring the continued growth of Mountainview Elementary School.
On behalf of the staff at Mountainview, we wish you all a great school year.
