Dear Mark Twain Community,
I want to express my sincerest gratitude in being appointed as the new Interim Principal at Mark Twain. I have already learned that Mark Twain is truly a special place. First of all, we have the most dedicated and hard working teachers. Our teachers have the biggest hearts for our students. Second, we are blessed with scholars who come from culturally rich and linguistically diverse backgrounds. Our scholars fill our school with their voices, dreams, and bright futures. Lastly, I am also following in the footsteps of previous highly effective school leaders, who have led our school in making significant academic gains. Again, I am very thankful and honored to serve this amazing school community.
I am excited for this school year to start. Our school district has released its new and powerful strategic plan, which is aimed at closing the achievement gap. To implement this strategic plan, Mark Twain is focusing on Goal 2, The Whole Child, and Goal 4, Mastery of Academic Content Areas. We will be continuing our collaborative work of Professional Learning Community (PLC) and Positive Behavioral Intervention System (PBIS) to help us focus on teaching and learning for all students.
I want to thank you in advance for your collaboration.I believe strong partnership between home and school greatly impacts student learning. I also want to thank you for trusting us with the academic and social-emotional development of your child. They are the pride and joy of our school. Please know that my door is always open so feel free to let me know if you have any comments, questions, or concerns. I look forward to hearing from you.
