West Allis Central School Students, Educators, and Community Members:
I am excited to have been named the Interim Principal at West Allis Central High School for the 2022-23 school year! I am looking forward to this opportunity and to working with all of you.
I would like to share a bit about my experience prior to the recent appointment. I received my Masters in Educational Leadership and Director of Instruction from UWM, with a focus on equity for all students. I became a Wisconsin educator in 2013, starting my career at Bradford High School in Kenosha, initially as a Social Studies teacher and later as a Dean of Students. I was named Assistant Principal at West Allis Central High School in the Fall of 2019, a role I have had the privilege of serving the past three school years. I look forward to using the knowledge I have gained in the last three years at Central, combined with my previous experiences, to help prepare students to Live Life on Their own Terms upon graduation.
One of our priorities is student, staff and community safety. We must ensure all students feel safe and welcome coming to West Allis Central High School to achieve their goals. We will use our Guaranteed Viable Curriculum (GVC) as the foundation to focus on standards and instruction. By implementing Deeper Learning strategies, in conjunction with our standards, we can help our students grow in both an academic and social-emotional lens to be successful upon leaving West Allis Central. Finally, students and community participation is critical in both our co-curricular and academic progress. We encourage all students to participate in activities that enrich their passions and keep them engaged with Central High School.
Let’s make it a great year to be a Bulldog!
