Brooklyn Hurricane Students, Staff, Families, and Community Members,

It is my pleasure to serve as the Director of Alternative Education and Athletics here at Brooklyn City Schools! In my 17-year career, I have served as a teacher, coach, assistant principal, principal, and athletic director.  I am very passionate about building positive relationships and providing the best possible educational and athletic experience for students and student athletes. 

My goals for the 2023-2024 school year include building positive relationships with all stakeholders, helping to grow the Brooklyn Digital Learning Academy, increasing participation in our athletic program, and instilling PRIDE in our schools and community.  I am very happy to be in Brooklyn and am excited to get to work!  I look forward to meeting everyone in the upcoming months.
