A Message from the Principal

In addition, I have also served as school leadership team chair and mentor. I am dedicated to ensuring that students learn, grow, and achieve personal and academic success.

It is my belief that when provided the opportunity and the necessary scaffolding and tools, all students can learn, create meaning, be innovative and become productive, contributing citizens. My goal is to make a difference in the lives of all who I encounter, to play an intricate role in the growth and development of students. My purpose is to ensure all students receive a high quality education grounded in rigorous, intentional, and relevant instruction that is designed to give them the knowledge, capabilities, and tools to compete globally. To reach my goal and adhere to my purpose, my focus will be on building and sustaining strong relationships and enforcing the use of best practices to assess, modify, and deliver high quality differentiated instruction. In addition, I will emphasize our core values of respect, resilience, and motivation.

Again, I am grateful for the opportunity to serve as your school leader and look forward to working you to ensure a successful school year and to ensure our students achieve excellence. It is imperative that we continue to nurture and sustain a strong school community. Thank you, in advance, for all of your continued support of the Alcorn Middle School, Home of the Knights. Please feel free to stop by throughout the summer to say hello. Before the start of school, you will receive correspondence regarding a meet and greet session as well as volunteer opportunities.
