Dear Harrington Families,
It is with great pride and excitement that I write to you in joining the Harrington School community. During my first few weeks in the district I have been welcomed by a host of stakeholders. It is clear through my initial observations and interactions that people are proud to be associated with Harrington Elementary. It is a school with an honored tradition and a mission of educating the whole child. Harrington's child-centered approach truly makes it a caring and supportive environment to learn. The partnerships that exist between the dedicated staff, families and community are evident and play a pivotal role in responding to the needs of every child that attends the Harrington. I am eager to continue this positive school culture and forge strong connections to ensure the best education possible for our students.
My past experiences while in the Navy, as a teacher and as an administrator have shaped my core beliefs and philosophy of education. For me, schools should be an integral part of the community they inhabit. They should also be focused on high expectations for all students, and through developmentally appropriate and best teaching practices, give students the skills to achieve these expectations. Finally, I believe that creating citizens who are a positive influence on their community and have a drive to continuously learn is a mission that any school should envision and strive towards for their students. It is my desire to work collaboratively with you to provide our students with a foundation for success as they spend their early educational years at the Harrington.
I look forward to seeing and working with all of you and to a great school year.
