Howdy Permenter family! Welcome to the 2016-2017 Permenter Middle School family! This is my fifth year as a Permenter Longhorn and my 19th year as a middle school educator. I am thrilled to have been given the opportunity to be Permenter's Principal and I promise to work hard to ensure every student's success.
I believe I have the true passion it requires to reach this group of students. I taught math for 14 years before being given the opportunity to show my leadership abilities at Permenter Middle School as the Assistant Principal for the past 4 years. I am happily married to David and have 3 children. Haley is in the 8th grade, Dawn Rae is in the 4th grade and Karsen is in 2nd grade. I believe that the differences in my own children help me to see the potential in all children despite their strengths and struggles.
I have earned the trust of my staff by being visible and supporting. They know that I have an open door policy with them and am willing to assist in any way. They also know that I have high expectations of staff and students alike. I would never ask anything of my staff that I would not do myself.
Students at this age are trying to figure out who they are. With the proper guidance and clearly defined expectations, I believe that they will rise to levels they never knew they could reach. The late Rita Pierson said “Kids don’t learn from people they don’t like.” Students today need to know that they are valued and cared for. Educators have a tremendous responsibility to the future and I believe the Permenter staff is ready for that challenge.
I consider all of the Permenter students to be my children. We are here to assist in any way possible. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. #HustleHard
