Dear Parents and Community:
As the principal of South Pittsburg High School, it is my sincere pleasure and honor to be a member of this great community. SPHS enjoys a rich history of academic and cultural success that is a result of a collegial partnership between the school staff, parents, and community who together provide a diversity of experiences for the students. During my time at SPHS, I have found this close working relationship and focus upon what is best for the students to exist. I am truly honored to be in this position and look forward to working with the dedicated staff to provide the best possible educational program for our students.
Before returning to SPHS, my professional journey has provided me with many diverse and unique experiences. I have had the opportunity to work with some exceptional educators. During this time I have witnessed a lot of diversity in leadership. I believe these experiences will enable me to better serve the students of SPHS.
My greatest initiative is to provide the leadership that will facilitate a school environment to provide differentiated instruction to meet the needs of each student. The educational programs must be academically challenging; engage each student by linking the curriculum to previous knowledge and experience, and promote further exploration of new ideas. Parents, teachers, support staff, administration, and the community all have an important role to encourage our students to become active learners. It is my sincere desire to provide expanded opportunities for our students to acquire the skills to become productive citizens in a vastly changing society.
Through a close and collegial partnership with everyone associated with SPHS, I am confident we can make our school an even better place for your students to learn and grow.
