Thank you for the opportunity to serve as your new principal. I am honored and look forward to the ways we will work and learn together as we begin the school year.
Over the past fourteen years, I've had professional experiences in four of our district's amazing primary schools. Most recently I was at Cedaroak Primary, as Instructional Coordinator. Prior to that, I was part of the leadership team that opened Lowrie Primary School. Sunset is an incredibly special place to me, as it is the school I attended, my children went to, and where I began my journey as an educator and school leader. I believe in deep collaboration, strong family partnerships, and professional learning that improves experiences and outcomes for every child. I also believe that our school should be a home away from home, a place where children feel joy and thrive. While our building has changed, there is a feeling of community and family that endures at Sunset. I feel so much gratitude to be "back home" and part of that family once again.
Throughout the year we will pause to reflect on this question, 'Where is it that we want to go, together?' We have a singular and significant opportunity to build on our strengths, while we re-vision, and plan toward the future of Sunset Primary School. I look forward to working together to make our new school a place of joy and belonging, one that is focused on the inspiration, contribution and success of each student in our care. Thank you again for welcoming me, and partnering with me as we begin this journey, together!
