Principal’s Message

Dear Cougar Community,

I am thrilled and honored to write to you as the newly appointed Principal of Hungary Creek Middle School. It is with great enthusiasm that I step into this role, and I am eager to embark on this journey alongside such a passionate and dedicated school community.

Allow me to share a bit about myself. I bring a wealth of experience to Hungary Creek as a former middle school math teacher in Henrico County, with 11 years of teaching experience at both Tuckahoe and Holman middle schools. In my educational journey, I have also had the privilege of serving as the Assistant Principal at Highland Springs High School and, most recently, as the Associate Principal at Elko Middle School. These roles have equipped me with a deep understanding of the dynamics of educational leadership and the importance of creating an environment that fosters both academic excellence and personal growth.

Currently, I am furthering my commitment to education by completing my Doctorate in Education at VCU in May 2024. This pursuit is not just a personal achievement but a testament to my dedication to continuous learning and staying abreast of the latest advancements in educational practices. You will soon discover I am a hands-on and highly motivated educator. I value my relationships with students and staff and advocate for quality instruction for all students.

First and foremost, I want to express my deep gratitude to my predecessor, Robbi Moose, for the incredible work and devotion he has poured into Hungary Creek. Under his leadership, our school has thrived, and I am committed to building upon the strong foundation he has laid.

Enthusiasm will be the driving force behind our collective success. I believe in fostering an environment where positivity radiates through every corridor, creating a space where students and staff feel inspired and motivated to excel. Support and collaboration will be at the heart of our efforts as we work together to achieve our shared goals.

Family, both personal and school, are integral components of a close-knit school community. I am committed to fostering a sense of belonging and togetherness where everyone feels valued and included. I aspire to have an open-door policy to promote effective communication, and I encourage open dialogue between students, parents, and staff. Your input is invaluable, and I am here to listen and respond to the needs of our community.

Dedication to academic excellence and personal growth will be a guiding principle in our journey. I am excited to work alongside our exceptional team of educators and staff to provide a supportive and enriching learning experience for every student.

I look forward to meeting you and working collaboratively to make Hungary Creek an even more exceptional place of learning. Together, let's continue to build a community that inspires, supports, and uplifts every individual. I could not be more proud to call myself a Hungary Creek Cougar.

I started on February fifth, and I am excited about the fantastic journey ahead!
