Principal's Corner


Image for Stakeholders

As the principal of Sandy Run School, I am thrilled and honored to serve our families and school community. The strong minds and kind hearts of Sandy Run have created a thriving environment full of learning and laughter. Relationships are the core of student success. Our students must know how much we care until they care how much we know.

A dynamic and exciting learning environment is created at Sandy Run because students are empowered as inquirers, collaborators, critical thinkers and independent thinkers. Achieving essential world-class knowledge and skills, as well as life and career characteristics are the goals of our quality teaching and learning experience. This learning journey prepares our students for multiple career and college readiness pathways to provide and cultivate continuous and relevant life-long learning.

A commitment to personalized instruction in our classrooms is evidenced as the unique abilities of our students are honored in daily interactions and high expectations. As a TransformSC school, Sandy Run School designs, launches, promotes and engages our students in transformative learning. Sandy Run nurtures authentic expressions of individuality through project-based and relevant student-driven learning. Any good idea becomes better when completed with students, rather than for students. This shared responsibility has a foundation in curiosity, inquiry, collaboration and empathy.

I am committed to establishing a strong partnership and alliance with the Sandy Run School families and community because working together for our students we are stronger. Our School Improvement Council, Parent Teacher Organization, Parent University, honor programs and fun-filled programs promote and celebrate our most valuable commodity, our students.

Remembering when we “Have a child’s heart, we have his head,” I am looking forward to growing and learning with our Sandy Run School community of learners. Expanding the curiosity of our students in a safe, secure and supportive learning environment can only propel Sandy Run K-8 School as the BEST SCHOOL IN THE UNIVERSE.
