Welcome Back Message from the Principal




August 28, 2023
Dear Parents,

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself as your child's new principal and to let you know that I eagerly anticipate the arrival of the new school year.  While I am new to the Preschool Academy, I have over twenty years experience in education.  I am thrilled to get to know your child and to form our preschool community together.

I have been employed with Whitman-Hanson Regional Schools for more than seventeen years as both a Special Education and Regular Education Teacher, as well as the Assistant Principal at Conley School for the past six years.  During my employment I have had the opportunity to work with children at all grade levels from Kindergarten to Grade 5, and have been fortunate to be exposed to a number of teaching methods and student learning styles.  I feel each experience has enriched me as a person and assists me in identifying the specific needs of each individual student. I believe in a hands-on approach to learning. When children experience the curriculum, their knowledge is retained for longer periods of time.  Your child will be involved in many opportunities to work independently as well as in cooperative groups.  

On a personal note, I have three children and two grandchildren, ages two and 5 months old.  Being a parent and grandparent has helped me to realize that although the relationship between student and teacher is critical, the relationship between parent and school is just as important.  I welcome communication from parents and recognize it is the parent who provides the most important feedback on their child and the adjustment to the school environment.  

In order to keep communication open and consistent, periodically throughout the year, I will send home newsletters discussing events and happenings in the preschool.   Your child's education is a team  effort dependent on input gathered from you, your  child’s teacher, myself, and your child.  Together,  we can help your child reach his or her full potential.

Thank you in advance for your support.  I truly look forward to working with you this year.
