Greetings Eagle Family,
What a pleasure it is to be selected as your new Principal. I am both humbled and excited to begin the school year in a community that is near and dear to my heart.
Growing up on the 3300 block of Presstman Street, two blocks away from the school, and having a grandmother who taught here, I am very committed to serving the students and families in this community.
Before coming to Belmont, I served in BCPSS in several capacities. I have worked as a Resident Principal, Mathematics Content Lead, Mentor Teacher, New Teacher Induction Facilitator, and provided training in the areas of Literacy and Social Studies. I am an Instructional Leader at heart with a strong belief in life-long learning.
It is my belief that children, no matter where they live, should be provided equitable access to a high quality education. In order, for our students to compete with other students across the country and abroad they must meet the educational demands of the 21st century. Our students must be engaged in rigorous educational programs which encompass real world applications that spark their creativity and forward thinking.
It is the responsibility of every stakeholder to be the VOICE for our students and to work together to ensure that our students are prepared for college and careers; as they will inherit our communities and one day take care of us. We will accomplish this goal together with our core values. Please take a moment to read the core values that will guide us as we move forward.
I look forward to learning, growing, and soaring to great heights with each of you.
