Greetings eLearners and Parents of Guilford eLearning University Prep!
I am excited and elated to be the inaugural and PROUD principal of Guilford eLearning University Prep serving students grades 6 through 8 in Guilford County School District. It is an honor to serve you in this capacity as we work together to facilitate the eLearning process, empower students to connect and interact with their peers and teachers online, through personalized and distinguished eLearning paths required for college and careers. I am fully committed to working with all stakeholders to intentionally transform online education and life outcomes for all eLearners.
I come to you with an educational experience spanning grades 6 through 12, first as a EVASS Level 5 middle school math teacher at Hairston Middle School, an instructional coach at Northeast Middle School, an assistant principal at Northeast Middle School, where we exceeded growth, and the principal of Dean B. Pruette SCALE Academy, serving students in grades 6 through 12. During my tenure as principal, I worked with the staff in developing high expectations for teaching and learning, implemented social emotional learning, and developed the school’s first Multi-tiered Systems of Support (MTSS). Additionally, we increased overall positive school culture and climate by changing the negative perception of the school; as a result, our parent exit survey showed that 100% of our parents felt our school was safe, warm, and welcoming. I worked to expand our community partnership and outreach programs. We were one of three schools, in the State of North Carolina to win the United Way Spirit of Excellence Award 2020. Also, two of our students were awarded the Most Improved Student Awards sponsored by City of Greensboro and Guilford Education Alliance.
I am also elated to bring my skills as an educational leader to our staff and to work with you as a partner in education to ensure our students’ success. I have a BS in Electrical Engineering from Virginia Tech and have received a Master of Arts in Teaching & Learning, Master of School Administration and Specialist in Education degree from UNC-Greensboro. I am presently pursuing my Doctorate in Educational Leadership from UNC-Greensboro. I also have experience in working with numerous digital tools and platforms to enhance the eLearning experience.
I am passionate about making a difference and empowering our students and staff to positively impact the world with their gifts and talents. We have PHENOMENAL students and staff at Guilford eLearning University Prep who are the reason and motivation for everything we do! As a school, we will work diligently with our families and community partners to create LEADERS who will impact the world. This will be done through a laser-focus on innovation, flexibility, rigorous instruction, and a personalized learning experience to prepare eLearners to compete and succeed globally.
I anticipate a very successful year as we support the academic, social and emotional growth of every student here at Guilford eLearning University Prep. I’m a firm believer that students don’t care what you know until they know you care; therefore, we pride ourselves as being a virtual school that is restorative and reflective. Being a part of your educational village, I am here to help you in any way possible. I believe EVERY student in our eLearning environment can and will achieve greatness with all of us working together.
On a personal note, I enjoy spending quality time with my family. We enjoy traveling and engaging in outdoor activities. I enjoy all things music: singing, listening, writing, and producing.
As we embark on our eLearning journey together please know that I will be reaching out to each of you to learn more about your personal goals, the school goals and successes, and also areas that we can collaborate to establish and launch. I look forward to building positive relationships with all stakeholders as we work together to provide a well-rounded eLearning education for all our students.
