Dear RMS Scholars, Parents and Community,
Please allow me to introduce myself as the newly appointed Assistant Principal of Riverside Magnet School. I am honored to be in this position alongside Ms. Matthews and look forward to making the 2022-2023 school year the best year yet.
I began my teaching career 13 years ago in Chelsea, MA, a town outside of Boston. The majority of my years as an educator have been spent working in East Hartford, CT. I was previously employed as an elementary classroom teacher, STEM Coach, Instructional Coach, and most recently, Interim Assistant Principal. I am a graduate of Springfield College where I received a Bachelor of Arts degree, Sacred Heart University where I earned a Masters in Elementary Teaching, as well as the University of Connecticut, where I obtained a Sixth Year Certification in Educational Administration. On a personal note, my husband and I have two children - a rising Kindergarten daughter and a Pre-K aged daughter.
I look forward to carrying out the RMS Mission and Vision - to honor the natural development and diversity of all children, so that they can reach their individual potential. It is my goal to continue to create a nurturing community of learners, fostering relationships and working in partnership.
I am excited about the opportunities each new school year brings and am proud to be a part of the RMS family. Please reach out if you have any questions or would like to learn more about RMS.
