Something you should know about me...

I'm happy and privileged to be part of your student's academic journey.

Each member of the LGA team (students, parents, and school staff) has made an informed choice to be an integral part of our school. Each team member has also made a commitment to do whatever it takes to help all LGA students to develop their academic, character, and leadership skills.

I believe we stand at a very special point in time. Educational research clearly states that ALL students, regardless of socio-economic status or ethnicity, can achieve when provided with high expectations, rigorous standards, and exceptional teaching. There are no shortcuts on the road to high achievement.

I have two wonderful kids of my own, who I hope will find a school grounded in high expectations.
