Principal's Corner

September 2015

Dear Patriot Families,

It is with great pleasure that I serve as the new Principal at Denbigh High School. Denbigh High  School has much to celebrate, one of which is becoming a Virginia Department of Education Fully  Accredited school! This accomplishment happened through the hard work and dedication of our  school community €”teachers, administrators, staff, students and parents. All stakeholders played a  major role in our accreditation success! Also, Denbigh High School celebrates its 50th year of educating the  Denbigh community! What a year of accomplishments!

As I begin my first year as principal of such a remarkable school, I would like to take a moment to  introduce myself. I have worked in many capacities prior to my arrival at Denbigh. Most recently, I  served as Assistant Principal of Instruction at Heritage High School. Prior to my time at Heritage, I  served as an Instructional Supervisor, Middle School Assistant Principal, School Counselor and CTE  teacher. I am not new to the Denbigh community. I worked as a school counselor at Denbigh for  four years; therefore, coming back the building principal was like a homecoming for me.

Denbigh is a school where focused, data driven decisions are made to benefit our students. Our  focus on teaching the Framework, using feedback and data to make decisions and building strong  student, staff and community relationships guides our work. We do this in an effort to prepare our  students to be college, career and citizen ready with the 21st century skills necessary to thrive in a  world where changing is constant and learning never stops.

My focus this year is continued progress and community involvment. Our staff will continue to  unyieldingly work on behalf of your child to meet their learning needs and help them excel  academically. As a community of stakeholders, we will work together to ensure the success of our  children throughout the school year. In order to do this, we need you! Your active involvement in  your child €™s education will assist us in ensuring success. Please continue to have open  communication with your child €™s teachers, counselors and administrators which will help to bring the  community together for the best interest of your child. I encourage you to get involved throughout  the school year. Together as a school community we can work to educate our students and help  them achieve success.

As I begin my first year as principal of Denbigh High School, I am excited about the opportunities.  We have a year full of opportunities to succeed academically, expand our connections to the  community and celebrate 50 years of education excellence. I am looking forward to a successful  school year! Go Patriots!
