Dear Communities of Johns Island and Wadmalaw Island,

It is with great pride and excitement that I write this note of introduction to you as the newly appointed Principal of St. John’s High School.

I am a native of Kingstree, South Carolina and attended the public schools of Williamsburg County. I earned my undergraduate and graduate degrees from Charleston Southern University. My vision is to develop the whole child by providing a safe environment that fosters upward mobility growth and academic development. I firmly believe as educators we are preparing students for college and or career readiness. Along with staff, I will work hard to continue the legacy of success established at St. John’s High School by building strong relationships with parents, students, staff, and community partners.  In collaboration, we will focus on School Improvement Grant (SIG) initiatives, 21st Century skills, fostering a nurturing safe environment for children, use of data to inform instruction, consistent implementation of instructional strategies to increase students’ achievement, and providing exciting and challenging enrichment opportunities for all students. My greatest initiative is to provide the leadership that will facilitate a school environment to provide differentiated instruction to meet the needs of each student.

Before coming to St. John’s High School, I was an assistant principal at West Ashley High School for one year and three years as associate principal for curriculum and instruction at St. John’s High School. I spent two years at Cane Bay High School as the Student Intervention Specialist/Instructional Coach and five years as a classroom teacher at James Island Charter High School. I was recently recognized by the South Carolina Association of School Administrators (SCASA) as the 2014 South Carolina Secondary Assistant Principal of the Year. For me, schools should be an integral part of the community they inhabit. They should also be focused on high expectations for all students, and through developmentally appropriate and best teaching practices, give students the skills to achieve these expectations.  

I am in the process of scheduling four “Meet the Principal” sessions throughout the community and I invite all of you to attend. I will communicate those dates in future correspondences. Each of you have a wealth of knowledge and experience that I am counting on for our school to continue its rise to excellence. My task at hand most immediately is to learn more about each team member's professional passions in order to support our success. 

Through a close and collegial partnership with everyone associated with St. John’s High School, I am confident we can make our school an even a better place for our students to learn and grow.
