It is with great excitement that I introduce myself as your principal and welcome you to Woodside Avenue School. I could not be more proud to be a part of this school community and am looking forward to getting to know each and every fabulous Woodside student and working with their dedicated families while teaming with the talented teachers and staff who work tirelessly to make Woodside the incredible place that it is.
I know that we will have plenty of time to get to know each other as we partner this school year, but I thought that it might be helpful to provide you with a bit of information about me before then. The most important thing you should know about me is that teaching and learning are at the heart of everything that I do. As a former teacher in the District, I have learned that there is nothing more rewarding than supporting children as they learn to navigate their world. Teaching children to ask questions, guiding them towards building problem solving skills, and reveling in the moments where they create their own understanding are the most rewarding experiences an educator could imagine. As the former Director of Curriculum and Instruction for the District, I have had the experience of working with our team to ensure that our curriculum supports each of our learners and that high quality instruction is the standard in our classrooms. I look forward to continuing to support our staff in providing an unparalleled educational experience for your children.
