"The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams."~Eleanor Roosevelt
Welcome to Quaker Ridge Elementary School, a place where we celebrate the whole child and help foster a love for learning while creating a safe and supportive environment that your child can grow and thrive in over the course of their elementary years. The faculty at Quaker Ridge works hard in partnership with the parents to create opportunities for our students to become productive members of society. We are dedicated to providing daily opportunities for collaboration, exploration, creativity, risk-taking, critical and creative thinking and above all, an appreciation and sense of pride in the accomplishments that our students achieve each day.
As Assistant Principal at Quaker Ridge, there are a wide variety of ways that I am able to provide support. First and foremost, I work closely with our school principal, Dr. Gil, to ensure that our building's needs are met and that we are prepared to provide the best opportunities for growth for both our students and our staff. It is part of our vision for the entire school to be a learning community where ideas are welcomed and cultivated - and the "sky is the limit". I also have the distinct pleasure of working collaboratively with all of our staff members, parents and students. I am able to work with teachers to achieve professional development and district wide goals that they have set. I absolutely love visiting classrooms and participating in the lessons that teachers plan so carefully. In addition, I meet with teachers, parents, PTA committees and students to discuss various educational, behavioral and other school related issues.
