Hello First Street Families!
It is my pleasure to be officially joining you this year as the proud principal of First Street School. It was fantastic getting to know our community a little bit at the end of last school year, and I am looking forward to getting to know each of you as we kick off our year together. I believe that each of your students has the potential to achieve great things and I look forward to working with your family and our teachers to provide great learning opportunities for each of our students this year.
My goal as an educator is to ensure that our school is a warm, safe learning environment for all students and their families. The first step in making this happen is connecting with families and our community. Being accessible to our entire school community is incredibly important to me, because it is through communication and collaboration that we can give your students the educational experience that they deserve. Whether you prefer to call, text, email, or chat with me at drop off or pick up, please do not hesitate to reach out to me using whatever method of communication you like best. I also want our families to feel confident communicating with me in their home language if that is most comfortable.
I believe in our school goal of educating students to become lifelong learners and I can think of no better way to do that than by modeling lifelong learning myself. While I do not speak Spanish fluently (yet!), I have a goal of being fluent in Spanish by the time our current kindergarteners are promoted from fifth grade. Feel free to hold me accountable to that goal! In the meantime, I will make use of the wonderful resources we have available on campus to ensure that communication is clear and comfortable for all of our families.
When you see me this year, please take a moment to stop and introduce yourself and your student(s). Families are a key part of the educational experience for our students; you are the expert on your child! I look forward to partnering with you to ensure that your child’s experience at First Street School is joyful and prepares them well for their bright future!
