While COVID 19 has challenged every aspect of our daily lives, Dover staff continue to be committed to excellence for our students. Currently, we are focused on the needs of our students as we recover from learning amid a pandemic. We look toward the 2021 – 2022 school year with hope that school schedules will return to normal and the educational opportunities that set Dover Schools apart can be restored. I want to thank each of you for your continued support of our students and school system.

It has been a privilege and blessing to be a part of this community and work with our students the past 32 years. When I started as a student teacher at East Elementary, I knew that this was where I wanted to work as an educator and devote my time and talents to working with the children of this community. In the many roles I have accepted and fulfilled, I have received lifelong rewards from the students and families I have served, as well as from the staff and community members that have worked alongside me.

Many of you know that I will retire in July. As I look to a new phase in my life, I will miss the students and the joy of watching them grow from children into young adults. There are many good things on the horizon for Dover Schools, and I believe the best is yet to come.
