Dear Skane Families,
I hope you all had a fun summer and made many memories. I am very honored to join the Skane family as your Principal/Supervisor. My hope is that we can learn and grow together during the 21-22 school year. We are all getting excited for our first day of school on Monday August 30th. Our dedicated educators are working hard to make sure that classrooms are prepared for your young learners!
As a Bridgeport native, attending Maplewood, James J. Curiale and Bassick High School, I am excited to be a part of your child’s first educational experience! Over the past 20 years in education I have worked within 3 districts and acted in 4 roles; Special Education Paraeducator (Bridgeport), Integrated Pre-K and Kindergarten Teacher (New Haven/Bridgeport), Instructional Manager (New Haven) and Assistant Principal (Hartford). My first administrative experience was in one of the largest Head Start Funded Pre-K Schools within the nation, Dr. Reginald Early Childhood School. Myself and our team opened the school, which housed 26 inclusive and self-contained classrooms. I then transitioned, as Assistant Principal supporting Pre-K thru 2nd grade and the Special Education team.
I am eager to work alongside you and the Skane Team, in hopes that we can learn from each other. Together, we will turn challenges into change to nurture, explore, create and support our district's youngest minds!
A.B. Skane School, Bridgeport
