Dear Parents, Guardians, Scholars, and Friends of Todd Beamer High School,
Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! It is an honor for me to help lead as principal of Todd Beamer High School, together with a team of bright, highly capable, extraordinarily focused assistant principals: Andrea Love, Val Manada, and Paul Reid. We have more than a dozen new staff members and a handful more to hire.
Our current teachers are taking a well deserved break, but did you also know that summer is the time when they, too, engage in instructional learning? Our teachers are dedicated in their craft and we look forward to their positive energies when we open the doors September 4th. Together, we are here for the challenging work of continuous improvement, relationship building, and academic achievement for every single student….and we can’t do it alone. These aren’t hollow words for us. We need your partnership, as well. We need your trust.
With growth comes change. As President John F. Kennedy stated, “We meet in an hour of change and challenge, in a decade of hope and fear, in an age of both knowledge and ignorance.” How these words ring true today as they did 50 years ago. With growth comes attrition and new hires. With growth comes decisions about whether we’d like to be part of the continuous move to improve our school culture, to build partnerships, and to increase the voice of scholars in creating our dream school. You’ve heard of the saying, “If we can dream it, we can build it.” It’s true. We can build it from within, from the hearts and minds of the very individuals that we educators try to influence every day! Come along with us! Let’s build our dream school together.
