Dear Parents, Guardians and Trojan Community,
It is with great pride and pleasure that I write this letter of introduction to you as the newly appointed Principal of The Greater Nanticoke Area Educational Center.  I am privileged to have the opportunity to lead my alma mater in its rich tradition of education!  I have been committed to the field of education for more than tw
elve years.  I have worked with a variety of students' ranging from Elementary through High School.  I am excited and enthusiastic to bring my skills as an educational leader, varsity football coach, and a veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom II, to Greater Nanticoke Area. I pledge to work with you as a partner in education to warrant your child's success in the classroom, as well as, in life.
With the administration, teachers and staff, I will work endlessly to continue the legacy of success established by GNA, by building solid relationships with parents, students, and the community.  We will focus on character education, Common Core skills and standards, the use of data to drive instruction, and to provide consistent implementation of the curriculum in a rigorous manner, so that we can continue to increase all of the students' achievement.
All of us at the Greater Nanticoke Area Educational Center are eager and excited to begin what promises to be the best learning endeavor.  This year is going to be incredible 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 imperative to me that everyone who steps through our doors: teachers, students, parents, and community members are excited to be here!  This attitude empowers us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun, and nurturing environment.  I have an open door policy and welcome your input. Please feel free to call or email me at any time throughout the year.
I am excited to work as a team, to develop each student at Greater Nanticoke Area to become a positive member of today’s society.

Best Regards,
