It is with great pride and excitement that I am the newly appointed Principal of the Art and Science Academy. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with such dedication to students and families!
I have worked in education for the past fourteen years. I began my career in Las Vegas as a kindergarten teacher, then went on to teach 4th, 5th and 6th grades and worked as an assistant dean in a middle school. My family and I moved to Minnesota from the desert three years ago. I spent two years as an administrative intern at Blaine High School and one year as Dean of Students at Pleasantview Elementary in Sauk Rapids. I am married and have a fourteen year old son and an eleven year old daughter. My nephew also lives with us and is attending college at Anoka-Ramsey.
Along with the teachers and staff, I will work hard to continue the legacy of success established by the Art and Science Academy by building strong relationships with parents, students and community partners. We will focus on character education initiatives, Common Core skills, the use of data to drive instruction, and to provide consistent implementation of the curriculum in a rigorous manner so that we can continue to increase all of the students’ achievement.
I look forward to working with you as a team to help each student at Art and Science Academy meet their goals and have a successful school year!
