How do I know this?
The Excellence of Leadership
I had the privilege of serving as Principal of Ascension Lutheran School from 2007-2013, where I witnessed powerful teaching and learning throughout my tenure. It is an honor to return this year to serve as Interim Principal and continue to support this powerful teaching and learning, as the School Board implements a Nationwide Principal search. The goal of the search is to find a principal who is a match for our school culture and community, who leads with competence and passion while providing excellence in instructional leadership.
The Excellence of Teachers
The core values of this staff and their commitment to living them each day are truly inspirational. They are dedicated, nurture for wholeness, expect academic excellence, emphasize leadership, strive to be an inspiration, train servant leaders while being committed to discipleship, in the name of Jesus Christ. The Ascension teachers, hold themselves to a high standard of providing a rigorous and relevant education while valuing relationships and faith. The Ascension teacher exemplifies the type of teacher every child deserves.
The Excellence of Our Hallmarks
The six years, that I served, as principal for our school, were the major blessed years of my 30 years of working in Education,for so many reasons! As I return this year I am finding that Ascension has remained true to evolving into a school that prepares students for the 21st century. They use technology as a tool in all aspects of teaching and learning. We are WASC accredited, and Nature Explore certified. We use critical inquiry as we grow complex thinkers thinkers and problem solvers. Our campus remains exciting as it holds such great spaces for learning inside and outside. Some of those spaces are…engaging classrooms, the Sanctuary, OutdoorClassroom, Garden and Maker Space, Music Room and Gym.
I am looking forward to my role, as Interim, as I actively support our work of always improving student learning and aspiring to continue to bringing our mission and vision to fruition,for each and every child.
Excited to lead, inspire and serve!
