Dear Families and Friends,

My gratitude runs deep for our Eastland community and it is truly an honor to serve our scholars, families and team members. I have been in education for 10 years now and have had the privilege of working in many capacities, the first being teacher, lead teacher, mentor, curriculum facilitator, assistant principal and now the role I hold with the most pride, principal. 

The reason this is my proudest title is because of what it means to be a principal at Movement and the deep sense of alignment I have to our mission and vision. Movement Schools exist to love and value your scholar. Everyday we strive to ensure we are growing them socially, emotionally and academically. It is so important to us that we grow the WHOLE scholar so they can see success not only inside our four walls, but beyond. We truly operate in what is best for our scholars day in and day out. 

Since the beginning of the year, we have done this through intentional work. We make it our mission to ensure high quality educators are in front of your scholars. We make it our mission to involve our scholars in an unapologetically rigorous curriculum that will grow them into critical thinkers. We make it our mission to involve our scholars in building a strong community at Eastland through character development and community circle. We make it our mission to have strong family partnerships because we know with a strong partnership with our incredible families, the sky’s the limit. At Eastland, we will continue to make it our mission to give our incredible scholars and families the educational experience they are entitled to. I am looking forward to continuing to serve alongside the community and come together to make a large impact on the east side of Charlotte at Movement Eastland!

the kind of world that it leaves to its children.”
