Principal's Corner

Promoting and Empowering Student Success

During the past few weeks, I have had numerous interactions with parents, teachers, students and community members.  From these conversations, it is clear that there is a collegial partnership between all stakeholders to provide the best possible academic experience for our students.  I look forward to fostering these relationships and working with teachers and staff to provide a premier educational experience for each child.

I have been dedicated to the field of education for twenty-four years.  My most recent administrative experience has been shaped by four years of successful leadership as an Elementary Assistant Principal.  I am elated to bring my skills as an educational leader to Providence and to work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child's success.

Along with the teachers and staff, I will work diligently to continue the legacy of success established at Providence by building strong relationships with parents, students, teachers and community partners.  We will focus on Common Core skills, use of data to inform and guide instruction, consistent implementation of newly adopted direct instructional strategies to increase students' achievement, and provide exciting and challenging enrichment opportunities for all students.  

All of us at Providence Elementary are eager and excited to begin what promises to be an excellent school year. During the 2016-2017 school year, we will be #goingfortheGOLD as we continue to provide academic experiences for our students that are rigorous and relevant.  As your principal, it is my goal that all stakeholders who step through our doors are excited to be here!  This attitude enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun and nurturing environment.  

Our vision at PES is Promoting and Empowering Student Success and we are dedicated to our vision!
