Director of Instruction
Middle School is an important time in a young person’s life. It is a transition from the elementary model of one teacher and one classroom to a host of new teachers, new classes, new friends, and a changing schedule. We do everything we can to make it a smooth transition for our students, and we firmly believe in investing in our kids through many fun experiences. We host pep rallies, moon bounces, dance-offs, special breakfasts, special guests, and multiple clubs and mentorship opportunities. All of this is with the hope of creating a safe place for our students to learn, to laugh, and to thrive. We develop leaders that upon 8th grade graduation are ready to excel in their high school career and make a positive impact on the community around them.
