Principal Introduction

 

 

 

Dear Lake Marion Creek Middle Community,

 

It is with great pleasure that I write this letter to you as the incoming principal of Lake Marion Creek Middle. It is truly an honor to become a part of the Lake Marion family and community. Even though I have only had limited interactions with the faculty and parents thus far, I can already tell that it is a unique and special place that I am incredibly excited to become a part of.

 

I come to you with 18 years of experience as an educator; however, I come from a family of educators, so I have been around this profession all my life. I spent 6 years teaching ESE and 2 years as an Assistant Principal and now closing year 10 as a Principal.

 

This summer, I plan to spend most of my time working with the staff of Lake Marion to ensure a smooth transition. I will get to know our building, our community, and familiarize myself with the unique needs of our school. I believe wholeheartedly that every student deserves a quality education and that only happens when the school and the families work together for the best interests of our children. With that in mind I will be calling on all our faculty, staff, and parents to work as a singular unit so we can best serve our children.

 

I am truly honored to be given this opportunity and look forward to immersing myself completely in our school and in our community. I believe my main responsibility is to put our teachers in the best possible position to succeed, as they will in turn put our children in the best possible position to succeed. I look forward to meeting all of you and please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, concerns, or ideas you would like to share.

 

Best Regards,

 

Wanda Aponte- Principal

 

 

 

Querida comunidad de Lake Marion Creek Middle,

 

Es con gran placer que le escribo esta carta como el director entrante de Lake Marion Creek Middle. Es realmente un honor formar parte de la familia y la comunidad de Lake Marion. A pesar de que solo he tenido interacciones limitadas con la facultad y los padres hasta ahora, ya puedo decir que es un lugar único y especial del que estoy increíblemente emocionado de formar parte.

 

Vengo a ustedes con 18 años de experiencia como educador; sin embargo, vengo de una familia de educadores, por lo que he estado alrededor de esta profesión toda mi vida. Pasé 6 años enseñando ESE y los últimos 12 como Subdirector / Director.

 

Este verano, planifico pasar la mayor parte de mi tiempo trabajando con el personal de Lake Marion para garantizar una transición sin problemas. Conoceré nuestro edificio, nuestra comunidad y me familiarizaré con las necesidades únicas de nuestra escuela. Creo de todo corazón que cada estudiante merece una educación de calidad y eso solo sucede cuando la escuela y las familias trabajan juntas por el mejor interés de nuestros hijos. Con eso en mente, haré un llamado a toda nuestra facultad, personal y padres para que trabajen como una unidad singular para que podamos servir mejor a nuestros hijos.

 

Me siento verdaderamente honrado de tener esta oportunidad y espero sumergirme completamente en nuestra escuela y en nuestra comunidad. Creo que mi principal responsabilidad es poner a nuestros maestros en la mejor posición posible para tener éxito, ya que a su vez pondrán a nuestros hijos en la mejor posición posible para tener éxito. Espero conocerlos a todos ustedes y por favor no duden en contactarme con cualquier pregunta, inquietud o idea que les gustaría compartir.

 

Saludos   Wanda Aponte- Directora
