Greetings! It has been a blessing having the opportunity to get to know and work with the SACS Staff as well as the parish communities. I come to St. Andrew Catholic School with more than 40 years of experience with the Lee County School System as a former teacher, principal and district director for both elementary and secondary education.
I grew up in Connecticut and moved to Fort Myers in 1964. I attended and graduated from Fort Myers High School and am a true GATOR and proud graduate from the University of Florida in Gainesville.
During my tenure with the Lee County School District, I was honored as a Principal of a National School of Excellence, a recipient of the Florida Commissioner’s Outstanding Principal Award and as an Outstanding Educator by the University of Florida – College of Education. I received my Doctorate in Educational Leadership from NOVA Southeastern University and earned my Bachelor’s degree from the University of Florida.
My goals for SACS include:
incorporation of Catholic Identity into every aspect of the curriculum
enriched program offerings through an infusion of the Primary Years International Baccalaureate and a
STREAM initiative which places an emphasis on Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Art and Math
enhanced instructional technology
establish a facilities plan that promotes a safe, secure, and welcoming environment
a strengthened school-based Evangelization (Building Faith, Hearts and Minds)
