My #IHPromise – to recognize and value the uniqueness of every child, every day. It is my desire to
create an atmosphere where students can meet their full potential. I promise to provide a safe
environment where students are motivated to share their ideas and take risks.
Building strong relationships with students and families is my top priority. As the dean of students, I am committed to creating a student-centered culture that is conducive to individualized growth and development of the whole child in grades K-12. We operate in a special place. Being a Brave means being a member of an extended family that embraces individuality, and fosters social, emotional, and academic growth. We support one another.
The reward for me is always the same: the smiles I see on our students’ faces. Watching our students arrive and greeting them each morning is, and will always be, the best part of my day. They enter our buildings eager for the adventures that await. We are here to make sure it is a memorable and magical experience.
