I am extremely thankful to serve the students, parents, staff, and community at Momence CUSD #1 in Momence, IL. I do not take my role as the high school principal lightly. It is my responsibility to encourage and foster student success.
...be the "personal" cheerleader/coach for our students who is always finding unique ways to motivate them daily.
...always challenge my students to do their very best, never settle for second place, but never lose sight of being a team player.
...provide each student with the "tools" that he or she needs to be successful parents, spouses, and community members.
...continue to promote the importance of students chasing after their dreams, but having a backup plan just in case.
...continue to support our students' willingness to take chances even if they occasionally FAIL. This will only make them stronger if they learn from it.
...continue to instill in our students that they need to be a part of something successful through the school.
Working in the Education Field is a "Family Tradition."
Whether we taught or not, we saw the value in attending college and gaining an education. It gave us "something" to fall back on in life if for some reason our true passion didn't work out or our life changed.
