Welcome to William Brooks Elementary School...home of the Bears! I am honored to be serving as the new Principal this year. I have been in education for 17 years, seven of those as a school administrator primarily at the elementary level. I have also served as a classroom teacher, new teacher coach, intervention teacher, and staff developer.
I strongly believe that all children can learn, and that it is my job to give them every opportunity to do so. In order to do this, my first objective is to build a caring and trusting environment where students and staff are encouraged to take risks I hope to encourage children and staff to be lifelong learners.
There is an old African proverb, “It takes a village to raise a child.” While we no longer live in villages, this still holds true. Educating our children requires that we work together, not for just our single issue(s), but for the greater good which is represented in our children and the school community. Children are our future and the success of that future depends on how well we educate and nurture them.
As the principal, you can expect that I will reach out to you and ask for your support, ideas, and involvement. I encourage you to join our community, where preparing children for the future is our number one priority. I pledge to do my best to ensure that each child is provided with a safe environment where they are supported in reaching their fullest potential. Through collaboration, open communication, and a dedication to continuous improvement, we will continue to make William Brooks a place where children enjoy learning.
I look forward to working with you in the coming school year. Please feel free to contact me should you have any questions or concerns.
