Dear East Middle School Families,

     It is with great pride and excitement that I join East Middle School as your Principal.  I look forward to partnering with you to ensure all student are celebrated and supported.  Together, we will ensure that we maintain our tradition of excellence and community that makes Youngstown such a special place.

     As an educator, I am driven by the success and growth of every student. I have devoted my career to educating, inspiring, and advocating for students, both as a classroom teacher and as an administrator. I am excited to bring my passion, enthusiasm and experience to cultivate the unique educational programs that East Middle has to offer. Above all, I am excited to observe, listen, learn, and understand what makes EMS thrive.

     My vision for EMS is to provide students with an educational experience that inspires and motivates them to be lifelong learners and caring contributors to the world around them. Our goal is to provide a nurturing environment that meets the individual needs of each student, both academically and socially.

     At the heart of my practice is building strong relationships with the staff, students, and families I serve.  We all play a part in helping our students develop academically, socially, and emotionally. Together, we can make a positive difference. As your principal, I will strive to ensure that all families feel welcome and connected to our school family. Please be on the lookout for upcoming newsletters and Remind messages, and feel free to contact me anytime by email at  or by calling our school office at (330) 744-7155.
