I am grateful and truly feel blessed and proud to have the good fortune of being the principal of Grand Blanc West Middle School. As the building principal my responsibilities include, supervising the overall building operations, overseeing curriculum and improvement, observing and evaluating our staff by visiting classrooms daily, arranging and providing for professional development opportunities for our entire staff, monitoring the building budget, developing and implementing the school improvement plan, as well as ensuring the safety of our students, staff and the learning environment of Grand Blanc West Middle School. I love West Middle School, I love the people I work with and I believe that Grand Blanc West Middle School is one the finest middle schools in the state of Michigan.
I am very proud to say that I have spent my entire career right here in Grand Blanc. I began my career in education over 30 years ago as a middle school seventh grade social studies teacher at Grand Blanc Middle School. Following my years in the classroom at “THE” middle school, I took a position serving the students and parents of Grand Blanc as a middle school counselor. After eleven years as a counselor, I began my administrative career as an assistant principal of Grand Blanc Middle School serving the students of the Brendel annex of the middle school. Eleven years ago, I had the good fortune of being named as the first building principal of Grand Blanc West Middle School where I remain today. My educational experiences include a bachelor’s degree from Western Michigan University, a master’s degree from Eastern Michigan University and an education specialist degree from Oakland University.
On behalf of our entire staff, I wish to thank each of you, our parents, students and school community for helping us provide our students with a rich and full experiences. Our sincere hope for all of our students is that the talents that have just begun to come out in middle school blossom and grow rich and bright throughout high school. We hope that all of our students carry with them good memories from their years with us. We hope to teach not just the curriculum, but to teach our students to live their lives with integrity and the hope of a bright and rich future. This school year is rich with possibilities and excitement, lets work together to make it the very best ever! We are West Middle School!
