Dear Rockhill Family and Friends,
Welcome to the 2014-2015 academic year! I am extremely excited to serve as Rockhill’s principal. This is my 23rd year with Alliance City School District. I most recently served as Rockhill’s literacy coach for the past four years and prior to that I taught at the elementary level for 18 years. I reside in Alliance with my husband Daren, my son Brock, my daughter Bailey and our dog, Cookie. I am proud to say that I am an Alliance Alumni and a member of such a caring community.
I believe in our students, our schools and in our community. I believe through strong communication, collaboration, an effective curriculum, and the element of care, our students WILL be career and college ready upon graduation. The foundation for learning starts at the elementary level. The staff at Rockhill is committed to helping every child achieve success. With a heavy focus on numeracy and literacy we will work relentlessly to engage each child in profound learning, while providing a safe and fun learning environment.
We are piloting a new Math program, we have new Science materials, and a new behavior system called "Clip It"! We are also stressing "The Golden Rule", ensuring every student feels respected and important!
As principal, my door is always open and I welcome your input. Please feel free to stop in or call to make an appointment to discuss any concerns, suggestions, or ideas to help make this year the best year yet!
A few reminders:
