Hello Florence School Families,
It is my pleasure to be here in my second year as an administrator at Florence Elementary. I have had the pleasure of meeting many of you in person, finally. We have been able to experience so many opportunities that remind us of how we are getting back to something very close to normal. I appreciate your support and patience throughout the trying times that we have been through, but I feel that Florence School District has been at the top for ensuring that the students and families have the support they need to experience the best educational opportunity we can offer while navigating the challenges that have been presented. We have been fortunate to have had successful Family Activity Nights, and the PTO has also provided fun family opportunities that we look forward to continuing.
My experiences throughout my 26 years of working in education have brought me to a place that I feel I can offer the most to teachers, students, and their families. As an administrator, I value the importance of high academic standards with support for students in the social and emotional areas, as well as, support and opportunities for families to be involved in their child’s educational experience. The teachers here at Florence are fully committed to the education and well-being of all students. The support systems for every student within the district and the willingness of staff to go the extra mile, provide a path of educational growth for every child that walks through our doors. We are very focused on closing any academic gaps that may have been caused by pandemic closures and virtual learning that proved challenging for some students and families. We are extremely fortunate to have top-notch technology for our students, and the staff is continuing to utilize what they have learned in order to keep our students at the forefront of the ever-changing tech world.
My priority is to support your child in every way, and offer support and guidance to parents as well, in working collaboratively to provide your child with a successful education. I have spent my career understanding and accommodating the needs of students and their families, and I fully intend to keep that commitment to all of you here at Florence Elementary. Communication is the key, and I will always be available to answer your questions or concerns.
I am so proud and excited to be here, and will continue the mission to “Positively Affect the Lives of Children.”
Thank you for your support!
Associate Elementary Principal
