Scott 6th Grade Center
Summer Update: July 18, 2022
Hello! I hope this letter finds you enjoying your summer. I am so excited to be the new Principal of the Scott 6th Grade Center. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with such persevering students, dedicated staff, and a supportive school community. I feel fortunate to be a part of Scott and support the students and families. I have started to meet the staff, and I can already tell you that it is a unique and special place that I am thrilled to be a part of.
I come to Scott 6th Grade Center with twenty-three years of educational experience. I began my career as a fourth-grade teacher at Holy Trinity in Bridgeport, PA for two years. I then moved to London, England, where I taught Second Grade for two years. When I returned to Pennsylvania in 2003, I began working in Daniel Boone School District. I started as a gifted support teacher for grades three through five. After four years in that position, I returned to being a classroom teacher. I taught fourth grade for ten years. In 2017, I returned to the gifted support position, but this time it was supporting Kindergarten through 5th grade. I began my administrative career in 2019 when the opportunity to work here in Coatesville at Caln Elementary opened. It was one that I did not want to miss! After being at Caln for the 2019-2020 school year, I was transferred to the Intermediate High School in 2020, where I have been one of the assistant principals for the last two years.
Educationally, I graduated from Villanova University in 1999 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology and my Elementary Education Certification from Rosemont College. I received my Masters in Educational Leadership and my Special Education Certification from Immaculata University in 2006. In 2014, I earned my Principal Certification from Cabrini College.
On a personal note, I am married to my college sweetheart, Mike. We live in Downingtown with our four children, Ian, Dana, Charlotte, and Mitchell, our dog, Jackson, and our bunny, Dot. Life is busy, but we love it! We enjoy watching movies, playing board games, and taking trips to the beach.
I would like to invite you to a “Meet the Principal” event on Thursday, July 28, 2022, at 6:00 p.m. in Scott’s auditorium. Light refreshments will be served, and I am looking forward to meeting everyone in person!
I am delighted about the opportunity to lead Scott 6th Grade Center, as this is a combination of my elementary and high school backgrounds. I know we will do great things together here. I invite you to be a part of our school whenever you can, participate in conferences, and share your ideas. I want us to work together to give our students every opportunity to be successful. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you need help for any reason.
