Dear Strong School Families,

I am honored to have been chosen to join the Strong School Community as Principal.  As your new Principal, I am excited and energized to work with our staff, students and families to ensure high levels of academic, social and emotional success for all of our children. 

Before coming to Strong, I served as principal of Lawrence Elementary School in Middletown for 3 years.  Prior to that, I was an assistant principal at Hamden High School for 2 years and was an elementary teacher for 8 years. During my tenure as a teacher; I taught kindergarten, first grade and fourth grade. My experiences have provided me with a skill set that will ensure continued excellence within our school.  Furthermore, I am a great believer in the connection between home and school.  Working together as partners will not only enhance your child’s educational experiences, but will also assist them in reaching their highest potential.  The best results for our children occur when we work together, developing happy, imaginative and caring individuals. 

Through a close and shared partnership with everyone associated with Strong School, I am confident that our school will continue to be a successful community for our students to learn and grow.  Please feel free to contact me at 860-328-3314 or  with any questions, concerns, or if you are interested in setting up an introductory meeting.  I look forward to our journey together and wish you and your children a relaxing summer!
