Letter from the Dean of Academics

Dear Parents and Students, 

I enthusiastically welcome you to a new school year at the Academy of the Holy Angels. It will be an honor and pleasure to work with you to empower the young students we see today develop into the women of tomorrow as they make their mark on society.

For thirty-one years, I have been fortunate to embrace Catholic education while serving in various roles of administration, guidance, teacher, moderator, and coach. My role as Academic Dean gives me the opportunity to participate in the development and implementation of long and short term range plans for our school, oversee the Performing Arts Program as well as our International Students. I plan and conduct academic case conferences with parents and faculty members, while providing support and coaching for faculty members in their first three years at AHA.

My style of collaborative leadership complements my ability to empower educators to develop their own instructional skills while guiding them to implement new innovative teaching initiative and curricula in the classroom.

I encourage you to take an active role in your personal educational process. Embrace the challenges you will face this academic year and explore new avenues to achieve your goals.

The entire school community is here to help you develop and hone your skills while you begin to make your personal mark on our society. Our dedicated and knowledgeable faculty and staff will challenge you and you in turn should challenge yourself throughout each step of your educational process.

The School Sisters of Notre Dame believe that “the world can be changed through the transformation of persons.” Help us to recognize and validate your unique gifts and talents so that we can empower you to contribute to our community world.

To quote Blessed Theresa: “Love gives gladly; everything, again and again, daily.” Continue to give gladly of your talents and gifts, and make a difference in the world.

I am looking forward to our journey together and hope to meet you at the many school functions, games, and performances.
