Friends of Eastern,
Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year at Eastern Senior High School! This school year represents a new beginning for each of us and we are excited about all the possibilities that exist. I am delighted to serve as the new principal of Eastern High School! I have served students, families and staff in Washington, DC for 11 years. Last year I served as the interim principal at Roosevelt High School @ MacFarland where we increased our Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) scores in ELA from zero to seven percent; and prior to that I was an assistant principal at Cardozo Education Campus. In my first year leading the 9th grade academy at Cardozo our promotion rate increased by 25 percent. I have extensive experience leading in various settings having been an assistant principal, special education coordinator and a special education teacher. I began my education career as a DC Teaching Fellow, and hold a bachelor’s degree in political science from Lehigh University, and master’s degrees in special education and educational administration from Trinity Washington University.
Our staff is dedicated to providing engaging learning opportunities and assisting our students in reaching their dreams. We believe education is a shared responsibility and a successful school depends on everyone. As a staff, we are working to ensure each class will challenge your students academically and help further his or her social development. This year, we are focused on deepening our partnership with our feeder schools, teacher collaboration and common core aligned instruction.
Please feel free to reach out to me at (202)698-4500 or at email@example.com with any questions or concerns you may have. We encourage and value parental involvement and believe that forging a strong relationship between the school and home is beneficial to student performance and academic growth. I am confident, that together, we can build on the strong Eastern tradition and make Eastern High School an even better place for our Ramblers to learn and grow.
All the best,
