Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year at Olive Drive Elementary School. As the Principal, it is an honor to have the opportunity to serve such an outstanding school community. My passion for education and supporting the success of all students has been shaped over the past 21 years as a teacher and a Dean in the Norris School District.
I am often encouraged by the words of the great, late Dr. Richard Pierucci, “Help students be better today than they were yesterday and better tomorrow than they were today.” It is my goal to play an instrumental role in inspiring our children to be independent thinkers, compassionate individuals, and high achievers.
Our staff is committed to providing a safe and student-centered environment for your children. It is our responsibility to set high expectations, promote academic rigor, ensure meaningful learning outcomes, integrate technology, and develop strong character. It is my hope that you partner with our staff to make certain our children have a successful educational experience.
I am very excited about the upcoming school year and am looking forward to a remarkable school year.
