Dear LHES Community,
I am thrilled and honored to introduce myself as the principal of Linwood Holton Elementary School. As a native of Richmond, I am excited to be joining this exceptional school community in my home city. Having been fortunate to work with wonderful educators in the past, I am particularly excited to join a school community that has a reputation for excellence.
Prior to joining Linwood Holton, I served as an assistant principal with Louisa County Public Schools and as a 5th grade teacher in RPS. During my time in Louisa County and in the classroom, I learned that the power of strong relationships between teachers, families, and students can positively impact a school's culture and students' academic success. Building meaningful connections with students, families, and staff members has been an invaluable experience for me, and I am eager to bring this passion and expertise to Linwood Holton Elementary School.
Relationships are the foundation of an effective education. As a principal, I believe that it is essential for every student to feel safe, loved, respected, and supported in their learning environment, and I am honored to continue building on the foundation Linwood Holton has established. I am committed to working collaboratively with each member of the community to provide the best educational experience possible for all of our students.
Please know that I am here to support you and our students in any way that I can. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to me. This year is going to be extraordinary as we continue to grow and learn together as a community.
Thank you for your warm welcome to Linwood Holton Elementary School. I am excited to be a part of this amazing learning community.
