• Hi!

    I am excited to teach at the Academy for Advanced Studies this year!   

    After retiring from the legal field, I am chasing my dream of helping students become successful and productive citizens. I will push your child to work hard to develop skills that will help him/her not only in school but in life.  I encourage parental involvement and hope that each student understands the importance of always communicating openly.  Communication is the key to success. I live by the open door policy; feel free to approach me so we can work as a team! It is my goal to ensure every student feels that they are important to me and that I only want what is best for their success.  In order for this to happen, it takes 100% commitment from us all --- student, teacher, and parent.
