Principal's Message

August 14, 2017

Dear Global Studies & Technology Families,


     I am excited and honored to welcome each and every one of you to the beginning of a new school year at Global Studies and Technology.  This school year will be a year of setting and reaching attainable goals, working harder and smarter and taking our school and student achievement to the next level of “GREATNESS”.  

     Allow me to introduce myself and express to you how excited I am to be entering my second year as Principal at Global Studies and Technology Academy (GSTA). Prior to arriving at GSTA, I served for 19 years at the middle & high school levels, initially as a mathematics teacher, followed by English Learner and Title 1 Coordinator and Assistant Principal.

     This year, I look forward to partnering with members of JPL, Boeing, Apple, Southeast Community Development Corporation, as well as members of the community, so that together, we can ensure that all Global Studies and Technology Academy students are on the trajectory to excel in their academic career, are empowered to face the challenges of the 21st Century, and are engaged as future global leaders in their world.  You will notice that we are transitioning to AVID School-wide to support our districts mission of “All Students Prepared for College, Career and Life”.

     I am fully confident that not only will our teachers engage our students in global issues using the most effective research-based strategies through Project Based Learning experiences, but that the deep-seated care and commitment of our staff will be readily and instantly felt by every person who walks onto our campus.

     During my journey at GSTA, I have witnessed and experienced the passion and enthusiasm that parents, families, and community members have demonstrated. Together, we will build upon the solid educational foundation that has already been laid through our partner elementary schools and lead our students in becoming empowered global citizens & technologically literate learners ready for an ever-changing world.

     I look forward to meeting and getting to know each of you in the coming weeks. Opportunities to participate with Global Studies and Technology Academy will be made available.
