    Dear Bruce Parents and Families,


    It is with great pride and excitement that I am introducing myself to you as the newly appointed Principal of B.K. Bruce Elementary.  I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with such a great sense of community and teachers who are passionate about the success of students. I have worked with a variety of students' ranging in age from Kindergarten through and including college.  My most recent administrative experience has been serving as the Assistant Principal at Bruce Elementary. I started my journey with Bruce in 2015.  I am excited and eager to continue to serve students and families in the Fifth Ward Community. I bring skills as an educational leader, knowledge of the needs of the students, teachers, and the community. I am looking forward to partnering with you to ensure your child’s success.

      Along with the teachers and staff, I will work hard to continue the legacy of success by building strong relationships with parents, students and community partners.  We will continue our focus on character education initiatives, building readers and writers in grades K-5, higher-order thinking in math, and the use of data to drive instruction. Bruce has developed sound systems to provide consistent implementation of the curriculum. We will research ways to deliver instruction to students in a rigorous manner so that we continue to increase all students’ achievement.

     All of us at B.K. Bruce Elementary are eager and excited to continue our journey that we promise to be the best year ever! This year has been a huge success. It is going to be amazing as we continue to provide academic experiences for our students that are rigorous, relevant, and help them build relationships while making real-world connections.  As your Principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors-teachers, students and parents-are 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, email me, or catch me greeting scholars at the door to share any thoughts or concerns you might have throughout the school year. 

    I look forward to working with you as a team to help each student at Bruce Elementary meet their goals and have a successful school year!
