Principal's Message


I am very excited and honored to be joining the Orchard Dale Wildcats as the new principal.  With over 18 years of educational experience, I am confident that together, we will be able to administer a quality education that enables students to become productive, responsible, college, and career ready citizens.  I am eager to begin working with you as a partner in education to ensure your child’s success.

I believe that building strong relationships with students and their families is one of the most important aspects of my job as a principal.  I encourage you to please feel free to stop by and say hello.  I want to get to know you and your children, and how to support you both.

Working together with Orchard Dale’s amazing staff we will continue the tradition of success established at Orchard Dale by focusing on character education, 21st Century Skills, using data to inform instruction, fostering a safe environment for children and providing exciting and challenging enrichment opportunities for all students.  You are encouraged to build a strong positive relationship with your child’s teacher, as they are your best resource.  I look forward to working with you as partners in your child’s education.
