Welcome to Jefferson Elementary! As the new building principal, I am excited to share myself and my passion for Education with the wonderful community of Mount Lebanon. I graduated from Penn State University with a degree in Elementary and Early Childhood Education. Throughout my own journey over the past ten years I went on to receive a Master’s in Educational Leadership & Supervision where I earned my K-12 Principal's Certification, and most recently completed a second Master’s in Counseling Education.
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 our school. 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. I am anxious to work with everyone in the community and to support a student-centered environment as we start this school year together. We are so incredibly fortunate to serve in a career where we truly can make a difference to our students and the future we all will benefit from. 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!”
