The SHAPE community encompasses multiple cultures, languages, and backgrounds of people from all over the world that allows for a school experience unlike any other. The diversity of our student body at SHAPE Elementary School allows our students to be exposed to different ways of living, thinking, and learning. Students who attend SHAPE Elementary School are able to be part of a school community where students collaborate, learn, and solve problems together in such a way that they not only grow academically, but socially and globally. It is a great honor to serve the students and families at SHAPE Elementary School as principal. The faculty and staff at SHAPE Elementary School will continue to build a shared vision of excellent instruction by establishing and sustaining a culture of continuous improvement. Having intentional and meaningful relationships with our students, parents, and community stakeholders will be a priority as we partner with one another toward academic achievement for each student. Meeting each student’s academic, social, and emotional needs will ensure all students feel part of our school community. I look forward to meeting each of you personally and I hope you do not hesitate to say hello if you see me at the school or in the community. I look forward to partnering with you as we educate, engage, and empower the students at SHAPE Elementary School to succeed in our dynamic world.
