Welcome to Curtis Fundamental, home of the Cougars! I am very blessed to be the principal of this exceptional learning community. My personal mission is to assist others in achieving their highest performance through support and example. My leadership philosophy incorporates this mission with my values of teamwork, communication and diversity. In the twenty plus years I have worked in education, I have had the opportunity to see firsthand the effectiveness of cooperative teamwork in obtaining operational goals. I attempt to model the importance and acceptance of all stakeholder input in decision making. Effective communication has always been a quality I value and an aim of my personal work ethic. The consideration of individual needs is necessary for creating learning environments that will be successful for all students. My extensive background in exceptional student education has taught me to be flexible and to value the diversity of each person, whether student, staff, or parent. I look forward to sharing in the future successes of this wonderful school with all the community of Curtis Fundamental Elementary School.
