As a 2003 graduate of Saline Area Schools, it is an honor to serve as assistant principal at Saline Middle School! The 2020-21 school year marks my second year as assistant principal of Saline Middle School and 11th year overall in K-12 education. Prior to working at Saline Area Schools, I had professional experiences at Cesar Chavez Academy in Detroit, MI, Monroe High School, in Monroe, MI, and as a graduate assistant at Eastern Michigan University, in Ypsilanti, MI.
In February of 2020, I successfully defended my dissertation—Culturally Responsive School Leadership: Examining White Male Principals’ Practices—through Eastern Michigan University’s Educational Leadership Doctoral program. I believe the school staff, learner (student), community, and family are four partners in the educational process. As an educational leader, I want to create a school that is future-focused, culturally responsive, learner-centered, and community-based.
Saline is such a vibrant community, one that I am proud to call home. I look forward to reconnecting with the Class of 2025, 2026, and 2027 families!
