It gives me great honor to serve you! Being a part of the Hawk family means more to me than you will ever know. I am proud to lead this school of excellence. We have a mission at Hillgrove and that is to provide DELIBERATE SUCCESS FOR ALL STUDENTS. I support this mission in every way I can. Some examples include embracing student voice and listening; relating to the heart of a parent while guiding them to enable growth in their children and provoking critical thinking and rigor in and out of the classroom. Understanding the concept of what it means to be a part of a TEAM is my desire for all stakeholders. We are all in this together and want success for all our students. I truly believe that all students can learn and be successful. The support from parents and the community is paramount for student success, and I appreciate all that you do to assist in obtaining student success.
The safety, academic, gifts and talents, and social goals of our students are all very important to me. The way we treat others is key for Hillgrove’s success. Being deliberately kind has positive impact, and I am an advocate for this response as much as possible. Consistent communication from students and parents, administration, and faculty and staff members play an integral role in this journey. Not only “what” we communicate but “how” we communicate matters as well. I believe we should support students as they step outside of their comfort zones to grow and develop in their studies, encouraging and challenging them in the learning process. Each student is important, and their high school experience is what I’m concerned with at the end of the day. Again, I’m happy to be here!
I am committed to the Hillgrove family, and I am here to serve!
