Principal's Message





Dear Parent(s) and/or Guardian(s),


I hope this communication finds you, your family, and children safe and healthy.  I wanted to take a moment and welcome everyone back as we begin to prepare for our fall return at Godwin Heights Public Schools.  For the past 9 years, I’ve had the privilege to serve as the Principal of Godwin Heights High School and Learning Center.  During this time, with the dedication of our High School staff, we have been able to successfully transform our building into a Rewards School that is outperforming our neighboring districts on state standardized tests.  


In my current position as Principal of Secondary Schools, I am working with both the Middle and High School buildings as the instructional leader for the 2022-23 school year.  Godwin Heights is my home and I have now spent over 23 years in this District supporting students, staff, and parents in various roles from an elementary teacher, Athletic Director, Varsity Basketball Coach and High School Principal.  In this new role, my main focus will be to ensure both Godwin Heights Middle and High School are places where learning is a priority, where our staff/students look forward to attending on a daily basis, and where parents feel supported knowing the needs of their children are placed first.


To accomplish this goal, our team will work to align our secondary programming "beginning with the end in mind” to provide our students with a seamless transition between buildings.  We will continue to focus on career and college readiness and develop systems that meet the needs of each and every child to ensure they reach their full potential.  As we move forward, it is important we work together to keep the best interest of our students at the forefront to prepare them for each grade level, graduation, and beyond.  If any questions about the bridging of our 6-12 buildings arise, please feel free to reach out to me or any of our team members with the contact information below.
