Assistant Principal’s Page

I feel honored and privileged to be a part of the SJS community…for three years as a fifth grade teacher and now in my ninth year as the assistant principal. Saint Joseph School has such wonderful students and parents and a terrific, dedicated staff.  Together, and with God’s grace, we make a successful school.  The warm, family-like atmosphere and the educational excellence that permeate our school are a real blessing.  I thank God for this opportunity.  I cannot imagine anywhere I’d rather be.

As assistant principal, the education and safety of our students are my utmost concerns.  From coordinating special programs to overseeing safety drills and procedures and the anti-bullying program, my goal is that every student feels comfortable and safe.  Along with my colleagues, I place a special emphasis on responsibility and respect.  We hope to bring out the very best in each child.

Teamwork helps us continue to foster a positive and productive learning climate at Saint Joseph School.  Parents, please do not hesitate to communicate your questions and concerns to your child’s teacher.  And please consider volunteering in the classroom and/or working with the Home & School Association and/or Development Committee.  The students are excited and proud to have their families involved in school activities.

Please take the time to read the Saint Joseph School Parent and Student Handbook to become familiar with the school policies, expectations, and routines.  In so doing, you will see that SJS fosters Christian values in an effort to guide our students—helping them in the present and preparing them for the future.

Thank you for entrusting your children to us.  Thank you to all our stakeholders who work so hard to help us provide the best for our children.  And thank you for your help and for your support to me.

If I can be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me.
