Pleasant Ridge Principal









It is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the newly appointed Principal of Pleasant Ridge Elementary School.  I possess over 20 years of educational experience spanning grades K-12 with a specific concentration in at-risk, special education, and enrichment opportunities for children.  As you may know, my most recent administrative experience was as Director of Special Education for Saline Area Schools.   The past 5 years as Director has enhanced my skills as an educational leader.  I am excited to bring my knowledge and experience to your son/daughter’s school and to work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child’s success.

The staff and I will work hard to continue the tradition at Pleasant Ridge by building strong relationships with parents, students, and community partners.  We will focus on a strong curriculum, next generation learning and the 4 C’s, while fostering a nurturing, safe environment for children.  We will use data to enhance student learning while implementing direct instructional strategies.  Our goal is to increase students’ achievement by providing exciting and challenging enrichment opportunities for all students.

I anticipate a successful year as the staff and I support the academic, social, and emotional growth of your child here at Pleasant Ridge Elementary School.

During the course of the year, we will work together to provide the students the best possible opportunities in preparing them to be world-class citizens ready to master the challenges of the 21st Century.  As Principal, my door is always open and I welcome your input. Please feel free to stop in or call to make an appointment to discuss any concerns, suggestions, or ideas to help make this the best year yet!
