I am very excited and honored to serve as the high school principal at AVCS. I student taught here with Mr. Gib Brown. 17 years ago, I started as a high school and middle school science teacher under the guidance and leadership of the new superintendent at the time, Mr. Paul Savage. Soon after, I became the New Horizons Program Coordinator. New Horizons was focused on meeting individual student’s needs to help them get through New York State graduation requirements. Many of these students had struggled in traditional classrooms. I worked with parents, students, teachers, and administration in this capacity for 15 years while continuing to teach the New Horizons students science. During the 2018-2019 school year, I became AVCS Middle School Principal, and then became the High School Principal one year later.
Throughout my time at AVCS, my focus has been on trying to meet the needs of students and families. I like to think that I am always learning and gaining experience. Oftentimes, parents of students are the greatest teachers. I can promise you that I will always try to do what is in the best interest of our students. This is not possible without clear lines of communication and a team approach between parents, students, teachers, and administration. I encourage you to reach out to me in person, by phone, or by email if you have any questions or concerns. I look forward to working as a team to meet the needs of our students.
