Principal's Message

  • I am honored to serve the Mt. Carmel family as your principal and could not wish for a better school community to be a part of. Educating our children requires a true partnership, and I am committed to joining with students, staff, parents, and the community to serve the needs of all students to support them in their academic and social growth.

    Educators are charged with the important task of ensuring that students are proficient in today’s rigorous academic standards. As Mt. Carmel’s instructional leader, I strive to guide the faculty’s efforts to know where each child stands and to problem solve by implementing strategies to continually move them forward. To achieve this, we work to ensure a supportive school culture that keeps the students and their long-term outcomes at the center of everything we do.

    However, desired student outcomes extend beyond academic success at Mt. Carmel. We understand that educating the whole child includes social and emotional growth. Our character education and positive behavior support efforts continue to evolve. In addition, we have plans to offer students more opportunities to explore interests and talents and to enjoy more school events with their families.

    Our school is full of experienced and passionate teachers who are committed to their students and creating a culture of success. To support that success, parental support is essential, and I invite you to join us as partners in your child’s educational experience. I look forward to our year together, and I thank you for entrusting your child’s education to Mt. Carmel Elementary. Please contact me if I may be of assistance to you.
