Dear Gaston Families,
Welcome to the Gaston Bandit Family! I’ve been so grateful to serve as Gaston Principal since 2019. I am a mom of one teenage son, as well as a dog and cat mom. In my free time, I enjoy camping, boating, and reading. I’ve been in education since 1999 in various grade levels as a champion for public schools. I love to watch the growth that all children experience over the elementary years.
At Gaston, we value inclusive, equitable, and safe schooling for our diverse school community. Part of Gaston’s mission is to partner with families and the community to provide a high-quality education as well as fostering the love of learning. Our vision is that when students leave Gaston they will be empowered, confident, and successful learners!
ALL families are welcomed at Gaston and we aim to partner with you to support your child. Our Gaston staff is amazing and we work together as a team with our families. Please don’t hesitate to call, email or schedule an appointment with me if you have any questions, feedback, or concerns related to your child’s education.
I provide family newsletters during the school year. Please stay tuned to hear about the many family learning activities that will take place during the school year. I look forward to learning alongside you and your child!
