“My family and I are delighted to be joining the educational team at ASV! My career has been dedicated to strengthening outcomes for students: helping students to redefine their expectations of themselves, supporting teachers to maximize their effect, and connecting with parents to combine our efforts. The work begins with listening and understanding the needs of the school; every school has its unique history and personality, just like every student. I hope to hear from each parent, teacher and student regarding what you love about ASV, and what your thoughts are to continue strengthening the overall program. The best programs are balanced and coordinated, attending to all aspects of student development so that students are truly college and career ready, graduating with many doors open. I look forward to using all I know about educational leadership and school improvement to add value to your child’s education. Please email me to introduce yourself at firstname.lastname@example.org.”
