Assistant Principal

Greetings parents!


I am looking forward to the upcoming school year as an assistant principal of Hernando Elementary School. My career in education has spanned over 34+ years.  My experience includes 19 1/2 years as a classroom teacher and 15 years as an administrator.  I am always committed to being a positive influence in the lives of all students.  Watching students as they succeed academically is extremely gratifying. 

I strive to instill in the students a desire to accomplish their goals.  It is important for them to have confidence in themselves in order to meet the challenges and succeed.  I believe open communication among students, parents, teachers, and administrators provide a strong support network for students.

Our priorities AT HES include a safe environment and student academic, social, and emotional development.  Research indicates parental involvement greatly improves a student's level of success.  Daily attendance is another factor which contributes to academic achievement.  We encourage an active partnership with all parents to create the best educational opportunities for all students.

Please contact me with any questions or concerns you may have during the upcoming school year.
