Dear Staff, Students, Parents, and Friends:
It is with honor and great pleasure that I greet you as the new Principal of World Communications Charter School.
World Communications Charter School has enjoyed tremendous academic success in the past. That success was as a result of hard work, dedication and partnerships that existed between school staff, parents, community members, and the most important stakeholder in the equation, the student body. This formula for success is what has attracted me from the very beginning when I walked through the doors of our school. I am humbled and most appreciative of the opportunity presented to me to become a member of this educational family. We can and will, together achieve that success again.
I am privileged to have spent eighteen wonderful years as an educator working with students from the elementary, middle and high school, and collegiate levels. The first ten years were as a counselor, teacher, academic coach, and program manager, with the Philadelphia School District. The last eight years have been as an administrator at the middle and high levels in Philadelphia and Chester Upland School Districts. The commonality in the two decades of experience has been the collaboration with others to provide the best possible education experiences for students.
During the course of the year, it is my hope that we will work together to provide the students of World Communications the best possible opportunities in preparing them to be world-class citizens ready to master the challenges of the 21st Century with a solid foundation created here at our school. Parents, teachers, support staff, and administration all have an important role to encourage our children to become active learners. I realize that differentiated, rigorous, and relevant instruction that meets the needs of each student will be the vehicle to obtain the success. The learning environment must be as safe and secure as possible for all students, staff, and support personnel. A team approach is highly necessary to create and maintain that desired learning environment.
I look forward to the exchange of ideas as we all work in harmony much like a symphony to create educational masterpieces for many years to come.
