Dear Parents and Guardians, With great excitement and pride, I write this letter to you as the newly appointed Principal of Ferguson Hall Freshman School. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with such a rich tradition of education, provided by an outstanding staff, as it takes on its own identity as a stand-alone building. I have been dedicated to the field of education for more than sixteen years working with a variety of students ranging in age from Kindergarten through twelfth grade. My most recent administrative experience was in the Xenia Community School District where I served as an assistant principal at the high school for four years. As the principal of Ferguson Hall, I am excited and eager to collaborate with you, in addition to the teachers and staff, as partners in education to promote success for all students. Along with the teachers and staff, I will work hard to continue the legacy of success established by Beavercreek City Schools by building strong relationships with parents, students and community partners. We will focus on improving academic achievement and promoting character education initiatives to support positive behaviors and good citizenship for all students. To support the academic and social/emotional needs of all students, we will foster a professional learning environment through a shared vision and collaboration. As we prepare for the first day of school, I recommend reviewing the student code of conduct with your child as we work together to provide a solid foundation for your child’s high school experience. It is important to me as building principal that everyone who steps through our doors - teachers, students and parents - is excited to be here! This attitude enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun, and nurturing environment. My door is always open and I welcome your input. Please feel free to call or email me to discuss any concerns you might have throughout the school year. I look forward to working with you as a team to help each student at Ferguson Hall meet their goals and have a successful school year!
