Hello! I'm excited to be the new Principal at Deal Island Elementary! This will be my 6th year as principal, but first at DIS. For those that don't know I taught 3rd grade here for 4 years prior to pursuing various leadership positions. I look forward to becoming re-acclimated to the school, meeting all the students and their families. I remember from my past experience here that DIS has an amazing staff and wonderful parent and community involvement! I am anxious to start collaborating and planning with all of our stakeholders to make this school year the best it can be! Everyone has experienced a lot of challenges the past year and a half but I look forward to helping the school move forward, ensuring we are preparing our students for a successful future. One of our priorities this year will be to increase parent and community involvement. We look forward to welcoming families and community members back into our school regularly, when it's safe to do so. I'm looking forward to a great school year!
