Principal Message

As your principal, I promise to continuously ask the question "What is best for students?" which will in turn guide the decisions we make at JES.  My philosophy is based on the belief that all students can learn, and that it is every staff member's responsibility to create a positive, inviting, safe school climate where students feel valued, challenged, and empowered.  We are so incredibly fortunate to serve in a career where we truly can make a difference.  I regard relationships and communication as the building blocks of every success, and welcome you to become a partner in all that Jefferson has to offer! 

I thank you in advance for allowing me the opportunity to “be the change we wish to see in our world!”
