Principal's Corner

EDUCATION AND THE PROCESS OF EDUCATING IS A TOTAL INTEGRAL, CONTEXTUAL SITUATION WHICH INCLUDES STUDENTS, TEACHERS, PARENTS, ADMINISTRATION, AND ENVIRONMENT.

"Reach out and touch somebody's hand.  Make this world a better place if you can."  This is the premise of my personal motto.  When I decided to become an educator, I took the sacred oath of cultivating young people to believe that the impossible is possible.  Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small people who find it easier not to explore the power they have to change it.  Impossible is potential.  Impossible is temporary.  Impossible is nothing.  It is my duty and responsibility to create a learning environment that will inspire all students to commit their energies and talents to academic excellence. 

Everything that I am is a reflection of my parent's hard work, time and love.  At an early age my parents instilled in me the importance of education.  They instilled in me that all things are possible and encouraged me to always believe in my dreams.  I am the proud daughter of Alvin and Darnell Campbell.  My siblings are Ivory Leveret and Jennifer Campbell.  My family has been my support unit and advocate for my professional endeavors.  They always told me that for every obstacle there is a solution-over; under, around or through it.  Always use your obstacles as stepping-stones.
