Hello Union Middle School Spartans!
Welcome back for the 2019-2020 school year. This is our fifth year together and we keep growing! We are growing academically, with an increase in proficiency for the third year in a row; but more importantly we are growing as a school community!
This year we will be focusing on Equity. The equity work we will engage in will support ALL students at Union Middle School. This equity work will be done under the context of breaking the opportunity and expectation gaps that exist in education. We truly believe ALL MEANS ALL!!
Many people in the world of education and business can tell you WHAT they do, they can tell you HOW they do it, but few people are able to tell you WHY they do it. In order to tell you why, it is important for you to understand my beliefs and my purpose. Here is my WHY:
- I believe all students can grow and learn and my purpose is to provide opportunities for students to grow academically, socially and emotionally in an environment that is safe and supportive of their individual needs.
Having said that, I will strive daily to ensure that students at Union Middle School have access to the opportunities they need to grow into successful, well-rounded young adults and that their environment encourages that growth. I look forward to working with parents, teachers, and other community members to make this happen for our students.
I look forward to making the 2019-2020 school year at Union MIddle School the best yet!
