Dear Plato Academy Family,
Tarpon Springs has always meant community to me. Tarpon Springs and its culture welcomed me as a young person in the simplest of ways: a Greek dance troupe named Levendia. The rich and deep history and culture this group offered me, and generation of others, was largely in part due to one director. He took a personal passion and offered it to the youth in the community. A large part of my identity formed through those experiences and the time I spend in Tarpon Springs.

I entered the field of education to give to students what I had been given growing up: a superior education, culture, and enrichment. In 2007, I was given the opportunity to join the faculty of Plato Academy Clearwater. I remember thinking that teaching at Plato Academy was the opportunity that connected all the important threads of my life, teaching, Greek culture, and a wonderful school for my children. I was even more thrilled when I was presented with the opportunity to open a Plato Academy in Tarpon Springs, a city that had offered me so much. It was a chance to take my passion and give back to the youth of Tarpon Springs.

As the leader of Plato Academy Tarpon Springs, I hope to give back in very specific ways. Each day, the entire faculty and staff at Plato Academy Tarpon Springs works diligently to enact our mission: to assist students in achieving their full potential by requiring and 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 my intention that Plato Academy Tarpon Springs is on a path of establishing itself as a pillar of the Tarpon Springs community. As Plato Academy Tarpon Springs completes its 6th year, offering a superior academic program that nurtures and develops the whole child, I hope that our work has only just begun. We look forward to educating, guiding, developing and enriching the future generations of Tarpon Springs and surrounding communities.

In Partnership,
