Welcome!! Words cannot convey how blessed I feel to serve this incredible school and community as G. Harold Antrim Elementary School’s principal. It brings me great joy to work with the children, parents, community members, staff, Board of Education, and administration of the Point Pleasant Beach School District. Antrim is my home away from home, and the children are my second family.
For those who may not know me, although I am new to the position, this is my 22nd year in the Point Pleasant Beach School District. My first 16 1/2 years at Antrim were spent enjoying the children as a classroom teacher in various grade levels and departments including 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grades, as well as Spanish K-8. In December of 2014, I was given the opportunity to serve the school district in a greater capacity as Antrim's Supervisor of Curriculum and Instruction.
As principal, I will ensure a socially and emotionally safe environment for all children and will strive to equip them with the academic skills necessary to be successful in anything they choose. We will accomplish this mission by implementing an ”every student, every day” mindset. Making connections with “every student, every day” is the foundation for all learning. It is important that every child feels special, accepted, and loved. At Antrim, this our priority! A child’s healthy social and emotional well-being goes hand-in-hand with academic success. My hope is that every child who walks through the doors of Antrim will feel supported and cared for, and as a result, will thrive academically.
I look forward to working with all of you, and I believe that active communication is the key to an effective home and school partnership. Please feel free to reach out if you ever have any questions or concerns.
