Dear Birches Family,
a long-time teacher and more recently Supervisor of Elementary Education and
District Basic Skills Coordinator in Washington Township, I am honored to serve
as the Principal of Birches School. I follow esteemed leaders as
predecessors in my position, including Mrs. Miller and Mrs. Zycinsky, from whom
I have learned a great deal. Birches School students and families are
well known throughout the district for their commitment to education and caring
involvement. Birches School teachers are acknowledged for their
excellence as teachers and mentors to their students.
Eighteen years ago, I started my educational journey as a student teacher at Birches where I was truly impressed with the level of professionalism and dedication of the staff. I am still impressed with the caliber of teaching that happens daily at Birches. I intend to keep the vision of Birches School as one of my foremost priorities! Birches mission is to enable students to develop their self-worth through interpersonal skills, while promoting positive attitudes, fostering honesty, integrity, academic excellence, and good citizenship.
The staff members at Birches are committed to providing the very best education to the children of Washington Township. They continue to find ways to provide a strong foundation for all of the students, in an effort to enable every child to reach his or her fullest potential as a student and an individual. I am honored to be the principal of such a reputable school! Having outstanding staff, eager students, and supportive parents, I am enthusiastic and optimistic that we will have a wonderful school year and look forward to a very successful tenure as principal.
