Dear Reagan Community,

I am beyond excited and ready for the 2019-20 school year, from hiring some of the best and brightest for our family, to hearing about our staffs’ summer vacations.  I am inspired to be working with the finest in Prince William County while keeping students the center of all we do!  Our motto is “Together WE Can!” where students come first.  In my second year as your principal, I want to make our motto a part of our everyday culture. 

As the principal at Reagan Middle School, I will encourage positive relationships that are built on mutual respect, trust, and transparency.  It has been my experience that a positive school culture must be built upon solid relationships with all of our stakeholders. I want to ensure you that Reagan Middle School will be a welcoming and positive environment for each of you, our students, and parents.

Our focus this year will continue to be CASL (Classroom Assessment for Student Learning) where we will continue to utilize best practices with grading and assessing through a standards-based approach.  Our goal is for all students to demonstrate mastery and take ownership of their learning.  Each student learns differently and at a different pace, therefore it is important that we utilize these best practices to ensure all students are receiving a World-Class Education.  When students know what and why they are learning, how they can be successful, and what to do when they are not, all students can and will achieve. However, learning cannot occur unless we build positive relationships with all students.  We will be making Positive School Culture and Climate another focus this year by implementing restorative practices, Collaborative and Proactive Solutions (CPS model), and a Multi-Tiered System of Supports program.

I look forward to having a great and successful school year!  If you have any questions you can contact me at or call the school at 571.402.3500.
