Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! I am excited to continue to be a part of the community at Indian Trail in Addison School District #4. This will mark my tenth year in education, but my second as Dean of Students. Prior to becoming an Indian Trail Brave, I was the Assistant Director of Educational Technology for a private school as well as having middle school math and science teaching experience. I am looking forward to putting my experience into action while working with the 8th grade class and the 6-2 Team this year!
By providing a safe and supported environment, our students will be in the best position to achieve success in their academics and their social emotional being. I am committed to developing an environment where students and staff are respected, safe, and valued.
In order for success in our students to occur, we must work as a team. I show every person respect and dignity just as I would hope they would show others and me. In doing this, my goal will be to create strong, productive relationships with students, parents/guardians, and staff members.
Communication with parents/guardians is a key component in achieving success. As I develop my relationship with each student, I hope to extend the relationship to the parents/guardians. As we work together, we will help develop the students into mindful, honest, responsible, trustworthy, and successful lifelong critical thinkers. This will increase their successes for both in and out of the classroom.
I look forward to serving the Indian Trail community and making this a great year!
Dean of Students
