Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year!

I am excited to serve as assistant principal here at Miami Shores Elementary School. I look forward to working with all students, teachers, staff, parents, and community members to increase student achievement and help foster a positive learning environment. I encourage students to strive for excellence and work on accomplishing their educational goals. Working collaboratively, we can ensure that all our students successfully attain their goals. Thank you parents for your continued success in being an integral part of your child’s education.

As your assistant principal, I am thrilled to be working with each one of you. If there is anything I can do to help you or your child, do not hesitate to contact me.

Greetings Parents, Students, and Community Members!

Welcome to Miami Shores Elementary School where our primary goal is to provide our students with a highly enriched and rewarding educational journey. Our school family is composed of highly qualified teachers, superb support staff and accessible administrators who are dedicated to academic and emotional excellence.  MSES continues to provide a quality and meaningful education in a safe and nurturing environment.  I highly encourage all students to challenge themselves academically by being in school every day and on time, engaging in all classroom activities, completing iReady lessons as assigned, and reading for 30 minutes each day. This goal can only be accomplished through a collaborative effort between home and school. Let’s make this connection a powerful one!

Our theme for the 2018-2019 school year is “Building Brighter Futures!” Join us as we embark upon the new school year with a brighter vision for our students! I am confident our students will continue to grow educationally!

I am honored to serve as principal of Miami Shores Elementary School and I am looking forward to working with each of you. If I can be of service to you, please feel free to contact me. Thank you and have a bright school year!
