Jacksonville Beach Elementary School
    Dedicated Magnet for Gifted and Academically Talented Students
    As the PROUD Principal of Jacksonville Beach Elementary School, I greatly look forward to continuing meaningful collaboration with the JBE teachers, support staff, and school community during the 2023-2024 school year! I am driven to create exciting and rigorous learning opportunities, maintain high achievement, foster acceptance of cultural and social differences, and inspire the innate desire to exceed expectations for all of our Academically Talented and Gifted students. I truly feel blessed to have the opportunity to serve in an administrative leadership capacity at this nationally renowned institution and positively impact the school culture by fostering the success of the "whole child"! 
    Our primary goal for every child to meet or exceed grade level standards can only be realized with parent/guardian involvement in the educational process. I highly encourage you to attend monthly School Advisory Council (SAC) meetings, join the Friends of Jacksonville Beach Elementary Parent Teacher Organization (FOJBE PTO), serve as a school volunteer, attend school-based and community events, and actively maintain an open line of communication with administration and your child's teacher(s). 

    Let's B.L.A.S.T. off into the JBE learning galaxy! We are Being Leaders in Academic Success to prepare students for a Tremendous future! Our school is simply out of this world! I can’t wait to see all of the knowledge our astronauts explore this upcoming school year as their teachers help them launch into their greatest potential with superior teaching! All teachers and students are invited to wear their best "space gear" on the 1st day of school, Monday August 14th.

    Our school community looks forward to continuing our legacy of superior academic achievement while simultaneously developing well-rounded school citizens! T-minus 180 days to make a difference!
