Assistant Principal

Dear Geddes Students, Staff, and Parents:

I am thrilled to serve as your Assistant Principal at Ernest R. Geddes Elementary School. At Geddes, our students are properly prepared to be 21st Century thinkers using critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, and communication to develop their decision-making and problem solving skills. Our diverse educational programs and co-curricular activities allow students to explore their interests and have new experiences out of their comfort zone. Using TELA (Teaching English Learners through the Arts) and rigorous content, our teachers challenge all students to explore real-world problems and engage in meaningful art learning experiences.

The teachers and administrative team hold the highest standards for all students at Geddes. High expectations for student respect, responsibility, and integrity help create a positive learning environment where all students feel enthusiastic about their school experiences. It is our goal that each child will reach their greatest potential both academically and behaviorally, along with being fully prepared for success in college and in their career. Geddes Grizzlies ROAR like Champions and collectively we strive to be Ready, Own Our Actions, have an A+ttitude, and Respect ourselves and others. 

This collaboration with the staff, students, families, and community members at Geddes Elementary School creates a culture that promotes the philosophy of life-long learning. It is my belief that this is the type of culture where all members of our school community can thrive.

As a member of your school community, I am excited to support your families in preparing our students at Geddes for success. My office door is always open. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, comments, or concerns.
