Dear Parents, Students, Faculty, and Staff,
As the new Principal of James S. Evans Elementary School, it is my sincere pleasure and honor to become the newest member of this great school community. Although I only just started in this position, it is already apparent to me that this is a warm, caring, and welcoming environment that operates in the best interests of its students.
My responsibility as the Principal is to ensure that your child receives a high quality education and to foster a safe and nurturing school climate. My educational background and experiences include teaching Spanish for six years in the WCSD and being the Sixth Grade House Principal for the past three years at Van Wyck Junior High School. Additionally, I have two Master’s Degrees in Adolescent Education and Educational Leadership/Administration as well as a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration. I am excited to share my knowledge and enthusiasm with you and continue to create a culture of excellence that provides opportunities for all students to learn and be successful.
I am confident, that through a close relationship between the school and community, we can build our Evans family bond to be even stronger and work together to support the academic, social, emotional, and developmental needs of all our students. Our goal is the same; that every Evans Eagle soars to his or her greatest potential. Please feel free to stop in or call to make an appointment to discuss any concerns, suggestions, or ideas you have to help make this year the best year yet.
The mission of the Wappingers Central School District is to empower all of our students with the competencies and confidence to challenge themselves, to pursue their passions, and to realize their potential while growing as responsible members of their community.
