It is with great pride that I introduce myself as the new Principal of Manchester Regional High School and I am incredibly thankful for the opportunity to serve your communities as an educational leader. I remember feeling a tremendous sense of joy when I was asked to become a member of the MRHS Family this summer. This was followed by an immediate sense of commitment to ensuring the continued success of your children, supporting the growth of your school, and forging lifelong relationships with all members of your communities. I pledge to serve your children to my utmost abilities every day, keeping them safe, ensuring they are provided with the finest education on a daily basis and, most importantly, providing them with the best experience possible in an environment that is welcoming, fun, and supportive.
I come to MRHS with fifteen years of public school service. Seven of those years were spent serving as an educational leader. During that time I was honored to serve diverse communities of people who were very supportive of their children and who allowed me to learn and grow with them. I served in all administrative capacities working with my team of colleagues to improve test scores and grades, reduce bullying, introduce new student programming, and create strong relationships with parents and community to make school climate and culture as positive as possible. Prior to my administrative experience I taught multiple subjects and courses as a special education and social studies teacher for many years.
My educational background begins with Montclair State University where I earned my BA and immediately entered the field of teaching. While working, I completed my MA in Educational Leadership at Montclair State University and my M.Ed. in Special Education at William Paterson University. It is my obligation to be a lifelong learner in order to always serve your children with a growth mindset. I also strive to continually apply what I learn to my practice and share this learning with my teaching staff so that we can grow and develop as a team.
I look forward to getting to know you during the upcoming school year. Our business is education, but the foundation of that business is relationships. I could not be more excited to create new relationships with you, your children, and our faculty and staff. “A person never stands as tall as when they kneel to help a child” –Anonymous. With that being said, I am so proud to be part of an organization that clearly takes the time to help their children every day. Please feel free to contact me at any time via e-mail, telephone, or by scheduling an appointment to meet with me in person at the school. 2018-2019 promises to be an exciting year of learning, fun, and excitement for our Falcons. I promise to do everything in my power to help them soar. Have a healthy, safe, and wonderful school year!
