It is my pleasure to introduce myself as the Director for the National School Boards Association's Center for Safe Schools and to welcome you to this community. I am greatly looking forward to this opportunity and am excited to take on the work of supporting our subscribers in providing safe and secure environments for all students, staff and surrounding communities. I have spent my career working in public education as a first teacher and school administrator in New York City Public Schools and most recently as a central office administrator in Washington, DC Public Schools, working in the areas of social-emotional learning, student behavior, bullying prevention and restorative justice. Through these experiences I have learned that school safety goes far beyond just focusing only on security measures or individual programs, but rather with a shift from reactive to preventative measures, focusing on supporting the whole child, while also engaging schools, families and communities. With this focus, I am ready to begin working together to make our schools and communities truly safe for all.
