Principal's Welcome

It is a great honor to lead as Principal at George McDougall High School (GMHS), where I also served as Assistant Principal from 2011-14. This school has a long tradition of academic, athletic, and artistic excellence. I am excited about the opportunity to explore and act on ways that we can improve our practices to make learning better for each and every one of our students. Our mission is to help all of our learners become confident, compassionate, and competent individuals, in community. We will reach these ultimate outcomes together, with equity, inclusiveness, and reciprocal respect.

Our staff is an amazing group of individuals and are passionate about each learner reaching their highest capacity. I am confident that they will be able to respond to any inquiries or concerns that you have. Do not hesitate to connect with them, as soon as you have a question or wish to resolve an issue. We also invite you to join School Council to learn about what is happening in our school and to add family voice in our going forward.

Please know that you can reach out at any time to talk with me, about supporting your student. You can reach me by email or phone. I have a 24-hour response policy (Monday - Friday); if you don’t hear from me in that time, I am off site.

I always look forward to working together to making spectacular things happen for our Mustang students and to co-create narratives of success!
