• Dear Students, Parents, and Faculty of Jacksonville Beach Elementary,

    I hope you are all having a restful and enjoyable summer break.  I am writing to welcome you to the new school year here at Jacksonville Beach Elementary School. I am excited to continue serving as your Assistant Principal and building positive relationships with our entire school community.

    This upcoming year, our theme is “let’s B.L.A.S.T. off into the JBE learning galaxy.”  Our students, faculty, staff, and families make Jacksonville Beach Elementary a special place, and we grow and learn together each day. We will continue to support students’ well-being and foster a sense of belonging and community within our school. And we will continue to promote a love of learning and a growth mindset for all.

    I look forward to seeing familiar faces and meeting new students, parents, and faculty members.  As we begin this new journey together, please remember that my door is always open, and I welcome any suggestions or ideas you may have to help make Jacksonville Beach Elementary the best school it can be.  Your feedback and involvement are invaluable parts of our school community.

    This year will undoubtedly bring new challenges and opportunities, but I have full confidence in the Jacksonville Beach Elementary spirit-our strong sense of teamwork, our dedication to our students, and our collective desire to make a positive difference in the lives of young people. With our shared goals and vision in mind, I know we will accomplish great things together this year.

    I wish you all a wonderful start to the new school year.  Please feel free to contact me anytime with questions, concerns, or ideas.  I look forward to the 2023-2024 school year.
