Greetings Parents and Families of Pleasant Grove High School:
For those of you whom I do not already know, it is with great honor and pleasure that I greet you as the new Principal for 2017-2018. I look forward to partnering with you and our community to provide our students with a rigorous, engaging, and high-quality high school experience. As the parent of two children, ages 14 and 10, I recognize the necessity of a strong home-school connection. Parents are indeed every child’s first teacher and I believe that by working together, we can make sure your child's social, emotional, and academic needs are met at the secondary level.
I have been privileged to have spent 17 wonderful years as an educator working with students at both the elementary and secondary levels. The past 12 years have been here in PGISD serving as both a classroom teacher and educational leader. During this time, I have grown to understand and share the deep values of the PGISD community as well as the expectations and traditions that have served our students for a number of years.
My goal is to ensure that all students at PGHS are provided a positive and safe environment where they can focus on learning and prepare for their upcoming future. I will be spending time with your children in the upcoming school days, getting to know their personalities and interest. I will celebrate their successes, both small and large. I will encourage them every day and let them know they have a special place in our school family.
We have a wonderful staff in place at PGHS who are eager to meet our students at the door in the upcoming weeks equipped to ensure an outstanding school year. We have been working all summer to be prepared to continue the level of excellence our students and staff produce. It is truly a great day to be a HAWK!
I look forward to meeting you soon.
