I hope that everyone in the Rohan Woods community has been healthy and safe during the past few months.  I want to commend the faculty and staff for their service during this time.   They worked harder than ever, committing their time and expertise in ways never imagined.  The school is incredibly lucky to have our dedicated faculty and staff, and I am immensely grateful for their tenacity as we faced and managed through unpredictable days and months.  I  commend our teachers for their abilities and willingness to support parents and students while personally sustaining their own families. Through all the hardships faced, one thing is evident; we have faculty and staff that are nimble and embrace change. 

This spring we discovered that our Rohan Woods School Community is ready for anything.  We have faculty that can capably deliver quality virtual instruction and parents who stepped up to the plate to create successful, in-home learning environments.  Our students were committed to continuing their education, even if it was at home and through virtual instruction.  Together we can accomplish and capitalize on great learning opportunities for our students. 

I want to personally thank everyone, faculty, staff, parents and students, for your commitment to the school and our program.  You are all  important beacons of light for each other and our students. To quote Eleanor Roosevelt, "With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts." Mrs. Roosevelt’s words are quite meaningful as we move forward to prepare for next year.

Thank you to our community of heroes, for wholeheartedly supporting our school community.  You are greatly appreciated.

I have a framed inscription in my house that has hung on the wall for a few years.  My attention has been drawn to it repeatedly lately.

Once a month, I teach a leadership class to the Sixth Grade students.  Our topics range from how to build leadership characteristics, to managing friendships, to the secondary school process.  My aim is to make the classes

Yesterday, four Second Graders unexpectedly arrived at my doorway, followed by Mr. Lou, our Director of IT. While I could hear their quiet banter back and forth, I was more keenly aware of the muffled giggles coming from them.
