It is with great pleasure that I serve you as your incoming principal at the WS/FCS Virtual Academy.  It has truly been an honor to become a part of the WS/FCS Virtual Academy community.  Thank you to the community, families, teachers, staff, and students for all the warm welcomes I have received.  I can tell that the WS/FCS VA is a unique and special place to learn and grow academically as well as socially.   

Prior to becoming your principal, I served as principal at Whitaker Elementary School, assistant principal at Wiley Magnet Middle School, instructional facilitator at Flat Rock Middle School, and a classroom teacher.  I come to the WS/FCS Virtual Academy with 20 years of experience in education.  

As we begin this school year, we will continue to keep student achievement our number one top priority.  We will also continue to focus on students' social and emotional well-being.  We will continue to meet every child where they are and move them forward. 

I firmly believe families are valuable partners in education, and I encourage our families to visit our school, work closely with our staff and teachers, and attend school events throughout the year.  This will start this fall with an in-person Curriculum Night - more details will be available as the date gets closer.  Furthermore, I invite parents and learning coaches to become aware of what curriculum, resources, and instructional strategies we use in our classrooms so that you can support your child at home, instructionally.  With your support, the WS/FCS Virtual Academy will continue to be a positive environment where ALL students are successful. 

I am looking forward to working with you all to ensure that the 2023-2024 school year is the best yet at the WS/FCS Virtual Academy. 

If you need me or have any questions, please feel free to reach me at or at 336-703-4296.
