"My background in teaching and leadership has instilled in me an enduring conviction that each and every single child can learn and grow, and deserves to be seen, understood, and supported in ways that respect their unique individual needs. I am committed to lifelong learning, especially the kind of learning that happens when people listen to one another and seek to truly understand a shared vision for success. I am joining the West Long Branch School community during a challenging time in public education, and I recognize that collaborating closely with you is the only way to ensure that we make informed decisions that build upon the foundations of excellence and pride that already exist while also finding strategic ways to continuously improve."
