Principal of Plato Academy
Plato Academy Palm Harbor Families,
It is a great honor to be a leader at the school that I helped to open eight years ago. I started as a second-grade teacher with Mr. Donnelly teaching third grade at the Palm Harbor campus. Our small staff came together to lay the foundation for an amazing school. I moved into the assistant principal position at Palm Harbor and learned my leadership skills under the direction of Mr. Donnelly. After one year, I was moved to Pinellas Park to open a new campus as the principal. I was there for three years and was asked to move back home to Palm Harbor where my youngest daughter has been a student since kindergarten.
At Plato Academy, our mission is to assist students in achieving their full potential by nurturing high academic and behavioral standards in a safe, supporting, challenging and enthusiastic environment fostered by a commitment and cooperative effort between the school, students, parents, and community. It is imperative that we work together as a family to ensure that EVERY student reaches their full potential. It is my goal to do all that I can as a leader to make this happen. Every child is important and I want each of them to strive to be the best they can be.
I am looking forward to being back home with the teachers and students that I have known and loved for years, and to meet the new families and friends that have joined our school family. I pledge to do all that I can to continue to make Plato Academy Palm Harbor an amazing school where the students excel. Thank you for this opportunity!
