A Message from the Principal

Principal’s Email: .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

I am delighted to serve the Empire community as your new principal. Since the start of the school year, I have had the pleasure of meeting many of you. I appreciate and applaud your dedication to securing an excellent education for your children. I look forward to leading the school in ways that will improve opportunities for all students and ensure that our students have 21st century skills. During the past 20 plus years I have worked in many different positions such as family educator, 1st grade teacher, Reading Specialist, Literacy Coach, Curriculum Specialist and finally as principal.
Through the variety of positions I’ve held, I’ve acquired useful and practical skills for leading teachers and staff in school improvement efforts. I have four children of my own, all of whom have graduated from college. My entire life, I have enjoyed being around children and supporting others to grow and learn.
I believe a positive school climate is the necessary foundation for academic achievement. Therefore I will proactively work to develop a sense of pride in our school community. When students make poor choices, I believe it’s important to teach them the skills and attitude needed to make a better choice in the future.
Teachers at Empire Gardens are dedicated and hard working. We’ve begun working together to implement the new Common Core standards and improve academics.
Please feel free to communicate with me at any time. Your roles as parent or guardian is so vitally important in the education of our students.

Un mensaje de la directora

Estoy muy contenta de servir a la comunidad de Empire como su nueva directora. Durante las primeras dos semanas del año escolar, he tenido el placer de conocer a muchos de ustedes. Les agradezco y les aplaudo su dedicación al asegurarse de que la educación de sus hijos sea excelente. Espero poder guiar la escuela de manera que mejoren las oportunidades para todos los estudiantes y asegurarme que nuestros estudiantes tengan destrezas a la altura del Siglo XXI. Durante los últimos 20 años he trabajado en diferentes posiciones tales como educadora familiar, maestra de 1° grado, Especialista de Lectura, Entrenadora de Lectoescritura, Especialista de Curriculum y finalmente de directora. A través de las diferentes posiciones que he tenido, he adquirido destrezas útiles y practicas para guiar a los maestros y al personal en esfuerzo de mejorar la escuela.
Tengo cuatro hijos, los cuales todos se han graduado de la Universidad. Toda mi vida, he disfrutado estar rodeada de niños y apoyar a otros a que crezcan y aprendan.
Creo que un ambiente escolar positivo es la fundación necesaria para el éxito académico. Así que trabajare proactivamente para desarrollar un sentimiento de orgullo en nuestra comunidad escolar. Cuando los estudiantes toman decisiones inapropiadas, creo que es importante que les enseñemos las destrezas y actitud necesaria para tomar una mejor decisión en el futuro.
Los maestros de Empire Gardens son dedicados y muy trabajadores. Hemos comenzado a trabajar juntos para implementar los nuevos estándares académicos Comunes Fundamentales y mejorar los estudios.
Por favor siéntase libre de poder comunicarse con migo en cual quier momento. Su papel como padres o tutores es de vital importancia en la educación de sus hijos.
