It is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the newly appointed Interim Principal of GEO Prep Academy of Greater Baton Rouge, K-8th. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with such a rich tradition of education! I have been dedicated to the field of education for more than 9 years. I have worked with a variety of students’ ranging in age from Kindergarten through second grade. Though I have served different roles in the field of education including classroom teacher, counselor, Grade Level Lead, Mentor Teacher and most recently K-2 Master Teacher. I am excited and eager to bring my skills as an educational leader to GEO Prep K-8th and work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child’s success.
Along with the teachers and staff, I will work hard to continue the legacy of success established by GEO Prep by continuing to build strong relationships with parents, students and community partners. We will focus on character education initiatives through our “I AM” program, grade level skills based on Louisiana State Standards, the use of data to drive instruction, and provide consistent implementation of the curriculum in a rigorous manner so that we can continue to increase all of the students’ achievement.
All of us at GEO Prep Academy K-8 are eager and excited to continue to strive for the best year ever. This year is going to be amazing as we continue to provide academic experiences for our students that are rigorous, relevant, and help them build relationships while making real-world connections. As your Interim Principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors-teachers, students and parents-are excited to be here! This attitude enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun, and nurturing environment. My door is always open and I welcome your input. Please feel free to call or email me to discuss any concerns you might have throughout the remainder of the school year.
