Meet Your Principal

"I am honored to be a part of the Chandler Woods Charter Academy community and I realize the great responsibility that I have to inspire, empower, and influence children, as well as the opportunity to positively impact the families, staff, and communities in support of all students. I strongly believe that students grow and achieve more when they are challenged and surrounded by involved and compassionate adults that encourage a growth mindset, both within and outside of the school. I am greatly looking forward to partnering with Chandler Woods to give our students what each and every one of them deserve—a top-tier, rigorous, well-rounded education that will prepare them to pursue their passion in life."
