I am most honored to continue my work here in the Mad River School District as your Principal of Stebbins High School. I have been a part of the Mad River Family since 2000. I have been in the role of teacher, curriculum support, student services support, and parent. I am thrilled that I now add Stebbins High School principal to that list. In 2017, I started on this journey and it has been the most rewarding position I have held in this district. I am proud to lead the staff and students at Stebbins!
I am honored that I get to collaborate with remarkable educators in fostering a positive educational experience for our students. Our goal is to educate for excellence by empowering students to become compassionate, confident, creative leaders of tomorrow. As a Mad River parent, I understand the need for Riverside students to receive a high-quality education that will equip our children for future success after they graduate. We focus on preparing students for their future success by promoting the three E’s. The goal is each student that graduates is on a path and prepared for Enrollment at the next level, Enlistment into one of our military branches or Employment in a career field.
Some of you may be interested in knowing a little bit more about me. Prior to this position, I served as curriculum and instructional support for the District. I have also held the positions of sixth grade teacher- math, ELA, science and social studies, and a language arts teacher for grades seven and eight. I started my teaching career at Dayton Public Schools as a fourth grade teacher. I hold a B.S. in Elementary Education from Wright State University and an M.S. in Education, Educational Leadership from the University of Dayton.
As a child who grew up in a military family, I understand the personal sacrifice and important contributions of military children. Furthermore, I appreciate the commitment, contributions and sacrifices of our military and their families. I look forward to creating a close relationship with all of our Wright-Patt families while they are at Stebbins High School.
I truly believe that communication is the key to a successful educational experience. Together, we will continue to improve the quality of our school community and provide the best for the children of Stebbins High School. Education is a partnership between the school, students, parents/guardians, and the community. All children are more successful when we work as a team to achieve educational goals.
My staff and I invite you to become an active participant in our school community through volunteering, joining our PTO, or attending and supporting school events. Research clearly supports that when parents/guardians participate and are involved in their child’s education, there is a greater likelihood of academic success for the child.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us. Thank you for this tremendous opportunity to lead and support the staff, students, parents and the community! I look forward to a wonderful year.
