As Principal of Clemens Crossing Elementary, it is my sincere pleasure and honor to be a member of this great school and community. Clemens Crossing continues to enjoy a rich history of academic excellence that is the result of a wonderful partnership between the school staff and parents who provide a diversity of experiences for our children. Education is both a process and a partnership. It is important that both staff and parents work collaboratively to support and monitor our students both academically, behaviorally and socially. Together, we can provide the modeling, consistency and structure our students need to achieve academic success and develop positive citizenship traits.
Additionally, our students and staff are supported by an enthusiastic and dedicated PTA! Our PTA offers many programs and supports to our school community; I sincerely hope that you will become a PTA member as well as volunteer and participate in our many events!
My professional career began in Howard County 20 years ago as a teacher at Hollifield Station Elementary. I served as an assistant principal at Hollifield Station and Bellows Spring Elementary Schools and principal at Bushy Park Elementary School. I have enjoyed serving those communities in the variety of roles, and I know those experiences will help me as I serve the Clemens Crossing community.
My goal as your principal is to cultivate a learning community where all students will grow in knowledge, teachers will actively engage students in learning, and parents are seen as valued partners in their child's education.
As we embark on another school year at Clemens Crossing, I look forward to continuing to get to know our families, watching our students learn and grow, as well as working together with you to make this a great school year! I am excited about Clemens Crossing's future and look forward to meeting each and every one of you. Your connection to our school is imperative for our success. If you have any comments, questions or concerns, please know I am here to have that dialogue with you. Again, I am privileged and honored to be your elementary school Principal.
