Hello! I'm excited to be back as Principal at Deal Island Elementary! This is my 7th year as principal, 2nd at DIS. I taught 3rd grade for 6 years before pursuing various leadership positions in SCPS. I am excited to work with everyone, including our new students and their families. Things haven't changed since I taught 3rd grade here- the students, staff and parent/community involvement are fantastic! Last year we were able to expand some of our community partners, including the MD Food Bank, and we look forward to expanding to include more organizations/businesses. I am also excited to welcome our families back into our school for various activities and events we're scheduling throughout the year. I'm looking forward to another great year with our DIS Skipjack family!
