Excellence is our standard so we will continue to strive towards excellence together. As your leader, I want to empower students and help them believe they can succeed, regardless of their circumstances and the adversity they face. I hope to foster an environment of lifelong learners, not only of students, but faculty and staff as well.
As the principal, I will continue to listen and learn from our students, staff, parents and community members. Through collaboration and a common understanding, I will make informed decisions that will benefit the school community as a whole. I will nurture positive and productive relationships that benefits students’ needs academically, socially, and emotionally.
We believe that ALL students can be successful. Together we can take Paredes Middle School to the next level.
