My commitments to the Idlewood Community are (1) to always give my very best; (2) servant leadership with shared decision-making; (3) a trusting, warm and collaborative environment that optimizes teaching and learning; and (4) transparency through clear, honest and open communication. 

I am dedicated to the vision of a student-centered community that focuses on the core elements of teaching, learning, and caring. I look forward to building positive relationships with each of you!
