Principal's Message

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year

It is with great pride and excitement that I join Lakeside Middle School as your new Principal.  Lakeside Middle School is a unique and amazing place that I am incredibly excited to become a part of. Together, we will ensure that we maintain our tradition of excellence and community that makes Lakeside amazing. I come to you with over 20 years of experience as an educator. I began my educational career as a science teacher, science instructional coach and Dean of Students at North Central High School. More recently, I spent the last 7 years as the Assistant Principal of Deer Park Middle School.  As an educator, I am driven by the individual success and growth of every student. I have devoted my career to educating, inspiring, and advocating for students, both as a classroom teacher and as an administrator. I am excited to bring my passion, enthusiasm and experience to Lakeside Middle School. Above all, I am excited to observe, listen, learn, and understand what makes Lakeside Middle School thrive. 

Lakeside Middle School's staff and I are thrilled to welcome back our students to in-person learning this year. We know our students need to be here and deserve the best, most interactive learning experiences possible. Here at Lakeside Middle School, our staff set high academic standards for our students. Our staff works diligently to ensure that each child is working to his or her maximum ability.  The middle school years provide a wonderful opportunity for students to discover their unique talents and gifts. Lakeside Middle School, the Lakeside Local School District and our 9 Mile community have a common goal to educate and empower each student to grow and succeed.

My door is always open to discuss any concerns, questions, or ideas you may have regarding your child’s education. I welcome you all to an outstanding learning community where everyone is dedicated to a high standard of excellence. My commitment to our community is to lead the school with enthusiasm and passion to enable us to reach our goals. With your support, we can build on past success to take Lakeside Middle School to the next level! Please don’t hesitate to contact me, I value your input.
