August 2017Dear Trumbauersville Elementary,
It is my pleasure to send this letter and to introduce myself as principal of Trumbauersville Elementary School. I am very excited for the upcoming school year at Trumbauersville. Trumbauersville is a school with persevering students, an extremely dedicated staff, and a very supportive school community. I feel very fortunate to be able to be a part of this school community and to be able to work to support the students and the families of our school.
This is the start of my 22nd year in education. My career started in the mountains of Eagle County, Colorado, where I supported students in special education and ESL for kindergarten through 5th grade. During my eight years in Eagle County, I also served as a 4th and a 6th grade classroom teacher. In 2005, my family (wife and two children) and I relocated to Bucks County and I taught 5th grade for the Central Bucks School District. In 2008, I transitioned to Quakertown and worked as the assistant principal for Strayer Middle School for three years. After that, I had a brief stop at Trumbauersville and Quakertown Elementary before serving as the principal of Neidig Elementary School for four years. This school year is my second full school year at Trumbauersville.
I try to bring a broad range of experiences in education to my role as principal of our school. I view education as a life-long process and expect that I will continue to learn much about the uniqueness of Trumbauersville in this year and in the years to come. Most importantly, I bring a belief that the students are at the center of all school-related decisions. I am excited to unite my experience, my openness to learn, and my child-centered approach to support our students. Because the relationships between families and the school are vital to the success of our students, I encourage you to become involved in every way possible. I look forward to working with each of you.I am ready to make every effort to help your child reach his/her fullest potential. I vow to give my all to our students’ experience, and I will request the same efforts from our staff and school community. Together we will continue to move Trumbauersville Elementary School and its students through a positive present and toward a strong future.
