Dear Dragon Families,
I am excited and humbled to be the new principal of South Daytona Elementary. I have heard wonderful things about the teachers, students, and the Dragon community and am looking forward to working beside you as we focus on the success of each and every student.
During my 23 years in Volusia County, I have served as a middle school science and ELA teacher, an elementary teacher, and an academic coach. As a servant leader, I will continue the tradition of the values placed on relationships and the results of the students, faculty, and the community of South Daytona Elementary.
Together, we will continue to move towards the vision to push the students of SDE to the forefront of Volusia County. I will work to assist the students, faculty, and staff in their own personal development and will learn alongside them as we continue to support SDE’s mission to ensure higher levels of learning.
I have been meeting with the current administration and district support personnel regarding any concerns that have been raised as well as our current student support priorities. I will be on campus all summer and will be scheduling small parent group meetings to discuss and address your concerns and priorities. This will also allow me to also begin to know our families!
Thank you for all that you do to support our school and our students. South Daytona Elementary: where every Dragon matters!
