Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! I am thrilled to be the new leader of such a wonderful school community and looking forward to getting started. As we move together into this school year, the faculty and staff at Kennard Classical Junior Academy join me in saying we’re happy to have each of you as part of the Kennard Classical Junior Academy learning community. We look forward to the engaging learning opportunities that your child will experience both inside and outside of the classroom this year. We are dedicated to providing students a nurturing school environment, increasing student achievement, focusing on the individual growth of each child, and establishing high expectations for learning.
This school year is going to be amazing as we work collaboratively to provide an academic experience for each student that is rigorous, relevant, and helps them build positive relationships while making real-world connections. One of the most important aspects of my work will be building strong connections with students, teachers and families. You’ll find me in the hallways, classrooms and at special activities within the school. My passion has been and always will be to enhance the educational experiences of students. With that in mind, you can expect that I will work diligently with teachers to make sure our students are exposed to curriculum and instruction that is both engaging and challenging. Each school year represents a new opportunity for students to learn and grow academically, explore new interests, and pursue their dreams.
If at any time I can be of service to you, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me. It is my goal to make our building inviting for families throughout the school year.
