Dear Stevenson families,

It is with great excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the new principal of Stevenson Middle School for the 2022-2023 school year. Thank you to District 89 and the Board of Education for having the faith in me to lead this school. My seven years of experience as a Dean of Students, Assistant Principal, and Interim Principal have uniquely prepared me for this role as Principal.

My familiarity with district initiatives, staff development, supporting a safe and inviting environment, and promoting learning experiences are key factors that I will continue to foster. I hold a strong commitment for maintaining a student-centered focus on academics and social/emotional learning. I believe in continuously improving our methods and approach to all facets of the learning environment. My work to build relationships and overcome adversity is another strong characteristic that I bring to this position.

Once again, it is an honor and privilege to serve the Stevenson community. I look forward to working with all of you for many years to come; my door is always open. Go Pirates!
