    It is my pleasure to serve the children of the West Manor community. I have worked with Atlanta Public Schools since 1999 and have worked as the Principal of West Manor Elementary since 2010. We are a Title One school located in South West Atlanta serving 300 students on a yearly basis. Our staff is committed to creating learning experiences that create global thinkers that are attuned to the world around them and respect differences of other cultures.

    Under my leadership the faculty and staff will utilize combined talents and abilities with research based best practices from district sources and stakeholders to provide an effective, safe, and supportive learning organization. We will use reflective practices for the purposes of professional growth and the enhancement of instruction. Our purpose is to prepare our scholars to understand their place in the world and to reflect on and possibly invoke change if necessary.

    West Manor has been and will continue to be a consistent top performing institution committed to academic excellence through adherence to the following virtues: identification of behavioral and instructional needs of students, employment of a continuous improvement model, providing resources for learning that are both rigorous and relevant that reach beyond the classroom, communicating with and soliciting support from parents and business partners. I look forward to working with you in efforts to serve the children of West Manor Elementary.
