I am enthusiastic to join this dynamic community and build collaborative and productive relationships with all stakeholders. By supporting and guiding all the innovative CTE and academic programs, athletic teams, and student events at PCTI, I strive to continue to make PCTI an amazing place to learn, teach, work, and lead.
It is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the newly appointed Principal of PCTI! I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with such rich tradition and reputation for success! I have been dedicated to the field of education for more than eighteen years and have worked in a variety of school settings from PK-12. My most recent school leadership experience was in the Passaic Public School District where I served as an Assistant Principal. Currently, I am continuing my education and enrolled in a Harvard Leadership Program. I am excited to bring my experience as a school leader to PCTI and work with all students and their families to ensure their experience is a memorable and valuable one.
Along with the faculty, staff, and administrators, I will work hard to continue the legacy of success and standard of excellence established at PCTI by building strong relationships with students, their families, and community partners. I will focus on providing all students with an excellent education within their chosen program of study and their extracurricular activities that will allow them to excel outside the classroom and promote their limitless potential. This will uphold the mission of challenging all students to become knowledgeable, productive, and socially conscious members of a global society.
All of us at PCTI are enthusiastic to begin what promises to be the best school year ever. Although the COVID-19 pandemic presents some challenges, we still anticipate an incredible school year as we continue to provide innovative programs of study while making real-world connections. Our teachers will provide rigorous instruction as they engage all students with relevant tasks that will allow them to enhance their 21st century skills in a collaborative setting. As your Principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps onto our campus is excited to be here! This attitude enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun, and nurturing manner. My door will always be open for you to share your thoughts and ideas. Please call or email me to discuss any concerns you might have throughout the school year.
I look forward to meeting all of you soon and working with you to reach all your goals and have a successful school year. Go Bulldogs!
