"Kids don't care how much you know until they know how much you care!"


It is both a privilege and a pleasure to serve the Lakewood community and Duluth Public Schools. Over the next school year I look forward to working with students, staff and families toward helping every child realize their highest potential. Our goals are 1) High Achievement for All and 2) a Safe and Welcoming Environment for Everyone in Our Schools.   Please help me to practice our district norms: communication, cooperation, teamwork, and conflict resolution.  Through cooperation and teamwork, we can make strides toward raising achievement for all students and supporting safe and welcoming environments for everyone in our school.  Through communication, clarity, respect and professionalism we are teaching our students 21st Century Learning Skills and demonstrating the power of collaboration.  I urge everyone to "Think Kids" first and foremost.  Please visit our school any time.
