Dear Families and Friends.

I am incredibly honored to be the Principal at Movement’s Freedom Campus. I had the opportunity to teach for years and even was a part of the founding fourth grade team here at Movement Freedom. I had the opportunity to be the Founding Principal at Movement Middle School and now I’m glad to be back to the Elementary School where my Movement School Experience began. I love every opportunity we have as a part of Movement Schools to help students achieve academically and grow in their character. 

This year our goal at Freedom Elementary is to achieve strong family partnerships by soliciting feedback, responding to trends, being transparent via open communication, and holding all stakeholders accountable.  I am honored to inspire and lead with a spirit of purpose, love, and service.

I’m especially thankful for our Movement Family (leaders, teachers/staff, scholars, parents/families, and partners) as we  continue this HEART work and service alongside one another.

Principal, Movement Freedom Elementary School
