It is an honor and privilege to serve as Fairley’s principal. I am passionate about working with students, and I’m very grateful for the opportunity to do this role. Education is my passion, and I genuinely believe that every student deserves the best chance to learn. In addition, I am truly honored to be part of such a caring, compassionate, and hard-working family. I love my students!

We will establish and maintain a safe environment where students feel secure and comfortable. High-quality instruction is what drives the work here, and we expect our students to do their part to contribute to a rigorous academic environment. Lastly, accountability is shared amongst all stakeholders, the school, families, and staff.
