Greetings SJHS Bulldog Family! Welcome to a new year at Sheffield Junior High School. It is my honor to serve this school and community as your new Principal. As a veteran educator with more than 26 years’ experience educating students, I am excited to become a part of Sheffield Junior High School. I look forward to experiencing the traditions of SJHS and the bright future ahead for the whole community.
As an educator, I believe the foundation of a school is built upon positive, respectful relationships that foster community and inspire students to be responsible for their academic achievement and personal behavior. I will be working diligently to get to know our students and parents. I will be seeking ways to strengthen the excellent programs and academics we already have as well as searching for new opportunities to enrich our school and students’ experiences.
SJHS is committed to embracing opportunities for all students to grow and develop through academics and social activities, unlocking the potential of each student for their personal best, and inspiring excellence in all students as we prepare them to be college and career ready. Our Alabama College and Career Ready Standards are the basis for all of our academic courses. Each course offers a rigorous curriculum and the teachers have expectations for high levels of learning in every class. The SJHS faculty and staff are prepared to make this the best school for learning and achievement for every student.
I am delighted to be here and working alongside our dedicated SJHS faculty, our community of parents and neighbors, and the PRIDE of SJHS – OUR STUDENTS!
