Meet The Principal

Warm Greetings

Dear PDES school community,

It is a great privilege and honor to introduce myself as the new principal of Peace Dale Elementary School and to join this extraordinary school community, which has already greeted me with a warm welcome.

Professionally, I present 23 years of practice in the field of education, where I have extensive experience in teaching, leading and coaching throughout an urban district. I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Rhode Island and my Master's Degree of Education from Johnson & Wales University. Recently, I completed a rigorous, residency-based principal certification program and graduated from the esteemed Principal Residency Network, at the Center for Leadership and Educational Equity. I am a passionate, dedicated and committed instructional leader that believes teaching and learning is a two-way process and I will support both my teachers and my students, as we strive to achieve educational excellence for all.

One of the most important aspects of my work will be building relationships with students, teachers and families. You can expect me to be accessible and visible throughout our school community and our events. I have an open door policy and value input and support from all stakeholders. My vision is to empower students, teachers and families to become change agents that will elevate teaching and learning practices, in order to provide educational excellence for each and every one of our fabulous students! I strive to be a leader that will build a culture of stakeholders dedicated to accomplishing this work.

To our students, I can not WAIT to meet you all! It's going to be a fun year learning together and I hope you are excited to come back to school! Soon, you will receive information about a meet and greet event planned in August, "Popsicles With Your Principal". I hope you are able to stop by and say hello. For now, I hope you are enjoying time with your family and friends(and reading lots of books).

I am looking forward to meeting each of you, as we start this new and exciting school year together. Please reach out if you have any questions, suggestions or just want to say hello!
