It is an honor to serve the students, teachers, staff, and family members of the Chardon Kindergarten Community. Each school year brings with it the chance to set new goals, renew perspectives, and achieve greater accomplishments.  It is my hope that all of the students and staff at Maple Kindergarten will join me in pursuing new levels of personal and collective success this school year! 


As your principal, I pledge to uphold and appreciate the existing treasured values of Chardon’s learning environment.  A strong sense of pride fills me when I think of the opportunity granted to me to work and grow alongside kind and empathetic students and teachers in a school and district that also has a rich tradition of high academic achievement.  The shared partnerships that we develop from building collaborative relationships with one another keeps this school community so strong and successful.

The dedicated, knowledgeable, and inspiring staff of Maple Kindergarten prides themselves on creating a safe and productive learning atmosphere that puts children’s needs first.  Our teachers and staff members here remain focused on providing a safe, academically challenging, and socially supportive environment for Maple students to learn and develop.  I am proud to work alongside these educational leaders and role models as well as alongside our Maple Kindergarten parents to create paths of bright futures for our students.  


Maple Kindergarten students deserve the best. I am passionate about my responsibilities as your principal and I pledge to make decisions that are in the best interest of your child.  If I can ever be of assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me.  Strong partnerships based on consistent, honest, and open communication will help keep our school a place where everyone feels welcome and supported.


Thank you for the opportunity to serve this great community.  It is so very exciting to watch over Maple’s precious Kindergarten learners of today as they become the leaders of tomorrow.
