Dear Incoming Sixth Grade Families,
Welcome to the Groton Middle School learning community! I am truly honored to serve as your grade-level administrator. Under normal circumstances, the transition to middle school typically raises a range of emotions that vary in degrees of happiness and fearfulness. During these unprecedented times, I recognize for many, the feeling of uncertainty is prevalent.
To navigate these unchartered waters of uncertainty, I pledge to use the oars of communication and partnerships. With this being said, student success cannot only be measured through academic achievement, but it also must be assessed by a student’s social and emotional well-being. Thus, I strongly believe in rigorous instruction, but equally in practices that best support social-emotional learning and equity.
Building relationships requires mutual investment. Teacher's voices are important, and so are parent and student voices. Thus, my door is always open, and I am eager to listen and collaborate. If you need anything, please feel free to reach out; TOGETHER WE HAVE THIS!
I look forward to working with you in the year ahead!
With kind regards,
GMS Assistant Principal
