Dear Baird Middle School Students, Staff, Parents and Community,
It is with great excitement that I write to introduce myself as your new principal. I am grateful for this opportunity and do not take this responsibility lightly. I look forward to getting to know the new families and continuing the great work we do here to provide our Baird students with an unparalleled education that will prepare them for an amazing future – full of choices and opportunities!
Prior to being promoted as the principal of Baird, I served as the vice principal and as the guidance learning advisor for the last 8 years at this wonderful school. In all, I have worked over 20 years in education. In addition to a variety of instructional and leadership experiences, I bring an unrelenting passion for serving our students to help them be successful academically, socially, and emotionally.
As I make this transition, I realize that a change in leadership can be unsettling, specifically during these times when we have experienced so many changes and learned that flexibility was paramount. However, rest assured my goal is to maintain Baird’s legacy, but to continually strive to make it even better. I feel strongly about shared leadership and I value the contributions from staff, students, parents and the community because when we share the same vision all students benefit. Together, we will collaborate and make decisions that will have the most positive impact on our campus for our students.
I am excited about the future of Baird and look forward to being back.
