It is an honor and privilege to be the founding principal of Sheldon Lake Elementary, our district’s newest elementary campus and a Performing and Visual Arts integration school. For years, I have dreamed of working in a school that harnesses the power of the arts to help students not only make deep connections in their learning, but also begin to tell THEIR story in a way that THEY truly enjoy.
This year may look different as we begin virtually, but our goal is to create and foster an educational environment that is equally rigorous whether you are on campus or engage through our Sheldon OnDemand virtual platform. We continue to want our students to enter a safe and positive learning community each day, where we encourage them to take risks in their learning, to step out of their comfort zone, and demonstrate their knowledge in a variety of ways through not only our amazing music, visual art, theater and movement/dance studios, but also in our equally rigorous core curriculum classrooms.
For over a decade, I have energetically served the families and students of Sheldon ISD as a campus administrator and I look forward to the challenge of reinventing the way we educate our students in the virtual world. I welcome you to this new school year for all of our new Eagles and their families. Together we will be Soaring through the Arts and Soaring to Success!
