Welcome Back Mustangs!
I am proud to serve as Terra Cotta's Assistant Principal. The 2017-2018 school year will mark my 23rd year in education, 18 years of which I have served as an assistant principal and principal.
As assistant principal, my focus continues to be working with staff, students, and with you to build a safe, welcoming, and supportive culture for our students. We continue to work on implementation of the PBIS framework and the utilization of Character Counts within our school. Additionally, we are working to add more positive incentive opportunities for our students to work towards in the areas of attendance, behavior, and academics.
We will also be providing opportunities for our students to provide input, ideas, and strategies relating to our school climate and how can we make it even more safe, supportive, and engaging for students. To increase student buy-in, we will also be starting a student Kindness Club. This club will focus on creating opportunities to share positive messages school-wide as well as to individual students and staff.
Middle school is an extremely important time for students. It is vitally important that parents and staff communicate often and partner together with TCMS staff to ensure academic and personal success for your student.
I look forward to serving you and our student community so that the 2017-2018 school year will be the most amazing year yet at TCMS.
