Faculty & Staff
I am the proud new principal at Ascend Academy Charter High School. Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year!
At the heart of my practice is building trusting and collaborative relationships with staff, students, families, and community members. I work under the philosophy that everything we do at Ascend will be done with the best interests of our students in mind. We meet our students and families where they are.
We look forward to an exciting, engaging, and successful year! Your input is valued and welcome. My door will always be open to you.
