Greetings parents, families and students!
Welcome to the 2016-17 school year!! I am elated to take over as the new Principal of Renaissance at Rand Middle School!! As such, I look forward to continuing the work of Dr. Weller, as we move into the 21st Century of learning and educating our students!! Before going any further, I would be remiss in my comments if I did not acknowledge the work of Mr. Bruce Dabney for his leadership and guidance of Renaissance in my absence!! Many thanks to him as he enters the next phase of his professional career!  

I know many of you maybe concerned about my vision and focus of the school. To alleviate any concerns, my intent is to simply elevate and enhance Renaissance to meet the needs and demands of all our students. More specifically, I am committed to learning the various nuances of the school that makes it so unique, while addressing areas (if any) in need of improvement.

As the new Principal of Renaissance, I look forward to bringing my skills and experiences as a school social worker, instructional, and educational leader to support the district’s goals and vision for the students in our schools. Equally important, I look forward to working with both, the PTA and SAT, as we progress throughout the year. To this end, please be sure to see my Bits & Pieces communication under the “Principal’s Bulletin” link of our website, as I welcome a collaborative partnership with the Renaissance community.

That said, I look forward to working with you and your children as we usher in a new era at Renaissance!
