As the Senior Director for School Culture, Academics, and Innovation, I am committed to creating an educational environment that empowers students, supports educators, and prepares students for the challenges of the 21st century.


With a deep understanding of the interconnectedness of school culture, academics, and innovation, I strive to cultivate a dynamic and inclusive learning community where 2E students thrive and reach their full potential. I firmly believe that a positive school culture is the foundation for academic success and lifelong learning.


In my role, I work closely with administrators, teachers, and staff members to develop and implement strategies that promote a culture of high expectations, collaboration, and continuous improvement. By leveraging evidence-based practices and research-driven approaches, I facilitate the development of innovative instructional methods and curriculum design that meet the diverse needs of our students.I am a strong advocate for nurturing a culture of innovation in education. I believe that embracing new technologies, pedagogical approaches, and interdisciplinary learning experiences can empower students to become innovators and prepare them for the rapidly evolving world they will enter. I collaborate with educators and community partners to foster a culture of creativity, entrepreneurship, and digital literacy.


As a dedicated mentor and coach, I provide ongoing support and professional development opportunities for teachers and staff members. I believe in fostering a collaborative and supportive environment where educators have the resources, training, and autonomy to excel in their practice. By empowering teachers, we create a ripple effect that positively impacts student achievement and overall school culture. I am thrilled to be part of a team that is committed to creating a transformative educational experience. Together, let's shape a school culture that embraces academic excellence, innovation, and prepares our students to thrive in an ever-changing world.
