Welcome back Stars! I hope you all had a fun summer! I am very excited to begin a new journey in my educational career. This year, I will serve as the Assistant Principal here at FDES. This new role will allow me opportunities to collaborate with classroom teachers to best meet the needs of of our stars. I am looking forward to sharing some research-based instructional programs as well as other strategies to help our students be successful. I plan on spending as much time as possible working directly with students and teachers. Please feel free to contact me at any time for questions or concerns. I am looking forward to a great year!
