"Kenwood...Preparing for the Future Today!"
NEW Principal's Message
Dear Parents, Students, Staff, and Community Partners:
I am enthusiastic and truly honored to be selected as the new principal at Kenwood High School. Kenwood is a school that is rich in tradition and history. Our skilled staff members, high academic standards, strong student support through guidance/programs, exceptional magnet and career programs, strong art, music, athletic, and technology programs, and our engaged community stakeholders create an atmosphere where each student is supported academically, creatively, and emotionally. As your principal, I intend to continue and build upon this tradition of excellence and with your help and support, I will continue to propel Kenwood High School into the absolute best possible high school for our students to learn and grow.
As an educational leader, I am dedicated to building strong relationships with teachers, students, and parents as a means of stimulating the learning and high performance for all. To better foster these relationships, you can expect to see me regularly in classrooms, at school events, and in the community as I seek to meet stakeholders, model expectations, observe highly effective instructional practices, and participate in all of the wonderful aspects of the Kenwood High School community. I seek your support in rejuvenating the Parent, Teacher, and Student Association (PTSA) with active and supportive stakeholders because your support is central to our school’s success. Together, we can ensure that Kenwood High School continues to grow and excel.
Once again, I am honored to join our wonderful community as your principal and pledge to do everything in my power to preserve the powerful programs we currently have in place while seeking to build upon, advance, and create incredible new learning and growth opportunities for our students. As the parent of two young boys, who are zoned for and will attend Kenwood High School, I am dedicated and invested in every aspect of Kenwood High School. Please feel confident that I will work diligently to create a school culture and learning environment for all of our children. I look forward to working with all of you this school year.
