Welcome to the 2019-20 school year. I hope that your summer was all that you wanted it to be. I am proud, and fortunate, to be the principal of McKernan School. The long standing tradition of excellence is well documented. I believe that the health of a school is determined by its culture, and that culture is based upon a solid foundation of respectful interdependent relationships between the home, the school and the community.
I am looking forward to continuing to develop strong, trusting, mutually respectful relationships with McKernan’s students and parents over the course of the 2019-20 school year. Collectively, as the staff members of McKernan School, we appreciate that you entrust us with the educational, social, emotional and physical development of your children. The staff and I are committed to providing a safe, caring and engaging environment that is conducive to learning at the highest levels. We are focused on continuing to embed a collaborative culture in our practice that allows us to develop students as well-rounded, responsible, respectful citizens. This is how I strive to raise my own children.
I am, and always will be, a teacher first. I make all of my decisions in the best interests of kids; all kids. I hope that you share my enthusiasm, as we move forward together in the 2019-20 school year.
