My goal for this school year is to join the Cherryville community, to serve the students of Chavis Middle School, and to work with the school community to help students prepare for high school and their future.
I’m excited to be here! I want to know about you: your strengths, your likes, your worries, your interests, and your goals. I want you to know I don’t just “work in the office.” I care about your classes, your games, your concerts, and you.
At the beginning of the school year, I had the opportunity to join the Chavis Middle School staff in welcoming new 6th grade students to the Wolverine family. Teachers and staff piled into cars and drove the school district not only to meet and greet students and their families but also to adorn their homes and lawns with Wolverine pride. The smiles of eager faces, the excitement from ones who knew the tradition, and the enthusiasm from staff were encouraging and compelling. This unique experience showed me that Cherryville and Chavis are a great place to be, and I am lucky to be here.
