Dear Webb Bridge Community,
I am tremendously honored and beyond excited to begin the journey as principal of Webb Bridge Middle School. Staying in Alpharetta and continuing to work with families I know is a dream come true. I look forward to building strong relationships and partnering with everyone in our community to create a shared vision for our school.
I want to take this opportunity to share my values and expectations. I value transparency, respect, fairness, compassion, and innovation. You can expect me to communicate openly and celebrate our school often. I will be visible and truly present spending much time in classrooms, the heart of education. I look forward to working with our staff and students to ensure our classrooms are places of engagement where all students are equally challenged to think critically and solve meaningful, relevant problems. Our students will be held accountable for their learning and behavior as I believe all can learn and find their passions. My expectations and standards for myself and others are high; we all need to be stretched from time to time to grow, but we also need time to process our learning and reflect. Tomorrow, I will begin reading the results from both the climate and principal selection surveys. I assure you I will study your responses thoroughly and use them to gain a greater understanding of our school's needs to help prioritize our work.
My goal is to create a learning community that collaborates through sharing, learning, reflecting, and growing. We will support and celebrate one another so all members can positively develop into their best selves, while maintaining a positive, balanced culture within the school and the entire Alpharetta community. My hope is to create "One Alpharetta" where our students and families feel welcome and connected from elementary school through high school, with Webb Bridge Middle School at the center. More than anything, I will focus on developing our students into well-rounded, self-sufficient scholars who are prepared for high school and beyond. I am excited to begin this journey together with our students!
