Dear Poynter Families,
I am Principal of Poynter Middle School. I am excited to bring my skills as an educational leader to your Poynter and to collaborate with you as a partner in education to ensure your child’s success.
Along with our staff, I will work hard to continue the legacy of success established at Poynter by building strong relationships with parents, students, staff, and community partners. We will focus on character education initiatives through Positive Behavior Intervention Support and CharacterStrong, foster a nurturing and safe environment for children, use data to inform instruction, consistently implement district and state standards through effective teaching strategies to increase students’ achievement, and provide exciting and challenging enrichment opportunities for all students.
The diverse student population at Poynter Middle School provides everyone with an awareness and appreciation for all cultures and backgrounds. Our Poynter staff are passionate, dedicated educators who set high standards of achievement so our young scholars can be successful. We are determined to drive rigorous engagement in literacy, writing, math, and science, and provide individualized opportunities for student growth. To ensure this happens, we collaborate regularly around student learning, challenge one another, and seek continuous improvement in teaching and learning. We set high expectations for ourselves and our young scholars, and work together in the process of achieving those expectations.
Thank you for trusting us with the education and caring development of your child. If you have questions or concerns that arise at any time, please do not hesitate to give your child’s teacher or me a call. Family support is a critical link to student achievement. We want to hear from you!
