Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year. I am entering my 18th year as an administrator within the Wappingers Central School District. This is my 8th year as Principal of Myers Corners Elementary School. I am excited to continue working with the students, families, staff and community members.
I have always been interested in working with children and encouraging them to reach their full potential both academically and socially. At Myers, we strive to support and inspire our students to achieve the highest levels of academic success. I encourage and promote family engagement, which is not limited to helping children with homework, attending meetings at school and checking in with teachers. I welcome your suggestions and participation to continue to make the programs at Myers engaging and meaningful for all students.
These formative years are crucial for a students' perception of their educational success. Their future depends on their positive experiences and the obstacles they overcome while in school. My hope for all students is that they will be strong, independent thinkers who take responsibility for their learning and growth. With rigorous instruction and continuous professional development, our teachers will continue to provide students with challenging and supportive learning opportunities throughout the school year.
I look forward to another amazing school year, and please know my door is always open.
