Dear Apple Grove Elementary Families,

It is with great enthusiasm and pride that I introduce myself to you as the newly appointed Acting Principal of Apple Grove Elementary School. I am truly honored to accept this opportunity to lead a school community with such a rich history of academic and cultural excellence.

I have been an active member of the Prince Georges' County Public School District (PGCPS) for eight years, serving as an assistant principal, instructional lead teacher (ILT), talented and gifted coordinator, classroom educator, professional development facilitator for both PGCPS and my assigned school. Prior to relocating to Maryland, I worked as a classroom educator, curriculum writer, data coach, mentor teacher and gifted and talented advisory member in the Brandywine School District located in Wilmington, Delaware for eight years. I feel very fortunate to be expanding my educational journey at Apple Grove! Apple Grove is a special and unique community of which I am proud to be a part of.

The elementary school years are an important and critical time for students. What occurs during these years will have a lasting impression on growth and development. My goal as Principal is to provide support to every teacher and to enable each student to reach their full potential. I am confident that our school will continue to be a place where daily our students feel loved, supported, challenged, and grow academically and socially.

On August 19, 2021, I will host a "Meet and Greet" to connect with students, staff members, parents and community members of Apple Grove Elementary. Further information is forthcoming and will be shared via the School website and School Messenger, our school notification system. I am hopeful you all will be able to join me as we begin our journey into an amazing school year.
