Degrees and Certifications:
As I begin my 23rd year here at Abbott and 12th year as Principal of Abbott Middle School, I am energized and deeply committed to making a positive difference in the lives of your children. We will accomplish this by setting high academic expectations for all children and providing supportive systems to ensure they are met. By addressing school culture, setting high standards for teacher performance, increased academic expectations for all students and engaging the community, it is our goal at Abbott Middle School that all students achieve to the highest of their potential.
Middle school is a vital bridge between elementary school and high school—it is also a period when young people, often for the first time in their lives, begin actively seeking a sense of purpose and place. It is our job to provide them with these opportunities, while also keeping them engaged, challenged and supported. Our children are gifts with limitless potential. Through the efforts of our entire school community, we can help them to develop their own unique skills and talents and prepare them for continued success far beyond their early adolescent years.
While we embrace the challenges of the future, we continue to cherish and celebrate the traditions of the past. We hope your visit to our website will give you a quick snapshot of life at our school. Please explore our links to find out more about curriculum, programs, and daily events at Abbott Middle School. If you would like to contact me, my e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also reach me by phone at (248)-865-3670.
I am looking forward to working with you and your student as we work toward an academically successful school year.
