    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 2020-2021 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 National Blue Ribbon School 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).

    Welcome to the JBE Jungle where we are Swinging into an Adventure of Focused And Rigorous Instruction! This year, we are ready to “trek” through any potential challenges in order to make the 2020-2021 school year the most successful “expedition” yet! All teachers and students are invited to wear their wildest jungle attire on the 1st day of school, August 10th. I can’t wait to watch the instructional “journey” of our students as their teacher “tour guides” navigate them to reaching high achievement!
