I look forward to partnering with you and your child to empower them to be effective communicators, globally-minded problem solvers, and life-long learners. With your partnership in their educational process, your child will realize their potential and become ethical, service-oriented citizens. “If there is no struggle there is no Progress”, Frederick Douglass.

    I am excited to be on board here at Frederick Douglass High School-an IB world school! I am the Assistant Principal for our A-G Scholars and the 10th grade liaison. I believe that every student deserves a world-class education where they are being encouraged to be inquirers and risk-takers, cultivated to be open-minded and caring, prepared to be knowledgeable communicators and thinkers. Ultimately, I am passionate about educating every student so that they can continue to be principled, balanced and reflective life-long learners.
