Innovation Phoenix Students, Families, and Community,

Welcome to our second year of Innovation Middle School and Phoenix Athletics.  I am so excited to be a part of our faculty and staff of Innovation Middle School, and look forward to continuing to  build a strong and competitive athletic program.  

In my nearly 20 years of experience, I have learned that the success of any school cannot be attained without the support of YOU, the community.  Whether you are a student, parent, or an involved member of our great community, you all have an integral role in creating a school that will be one of the best in Orange County.  I am excited about working hand in hand with each and every one of you.

Middle School Athletics are very important in OCPS, and I anticipate having strong teams that will compete for county championships.  It is also my goal for our student-athletes to maintain high academic success.  Additionally, the success of an athletic program is also measured by the quality of character that the student-athletes demonstrate off the field. Innovation Phoenix will be great citizens.

According to mythology, the Phoenix was known for its ability to live forever.  It is my goal for the students of Innovation to gain a sense of pride and spirit in their school and community.  Just as the ancient Phoenix did, I want this PRIDE and SPIRIT to live in them forever.  

Looking forward to an amazing year!
