From the Desk of the Principal
My values as an administrator are founded on my passion to ensure success for all GES students. I am thankful for the diverse experiences I’ve had to build the leadership characteristics I value most – teamwork, honesty, transparency, and effective communication. I fully intend on leveraging these traits to pursue my number one priority at GES – to ensure that every student receives an education and experience that provides them the greatest opportunity to succeed, both within the walls of GES and beyond them. To accomplish this, our students deserve outstanding instruction from highly qualified teachers, exceptional leadership from effective administrators, and equal access to opportunities and supports that enable them to develop character, cultivate passions, and explore the world around them. As your principal, I am committed to this endeavor by ensuring that student needs and interests help shape instruction and opportunities through a shared commitment to learning, and that all students have equal opportunity to discover their passions and sense of purpose.
I also highly value frequent collaboration with parents, staff, and community members. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions, concerns, or ideas that you would like to discuss. I look forward to a great year ahead for all of us.
