Dear Families,
With the new school year approaching I am excited to continue to work with the students, parents, teachers and principals within our school community to help our students grow academically, socially and emotionally and afford them the opportunity to develop into positive, caring and well-rounded citizens. 

My main areas of focus include, Intervention and Referral Services, Character Education Curriculum and Anti-Bullying resources, activities and programs. A priority of mine is to ensure that these student centered programs and initiatives will continue to be developed and implemented within our schools to provide enriching and meaningful experiences for our students.  I am confident that our students will continue to benefit from these programs and my goal, in conjunction with the entire school community of Long Hill Township, is to watch them thrive as they travel through their academic journey. 

Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions or concerns you may have. I am here to be a helpful resource for the families of the Long Hill community. My contact information is below:
