Dear OLPH families,
After seven wonderful years at OLPH, I am writing to share the bittersweet news that I have decided to step down as principal at the end of this year. I have accepted a position as the Upper Level Director at Notre Dame Preparatory School in Towson. My focus over the next few months will be to ensure a seamless transition for my successor to continue the tradition of excellence that we’ve established together.
Working with your children and all of you has been my greatest joy, and I have been blessed to have such a dedicated faculty and staff. These past several years we’ve seen many changes at the school, and I am proud of these accomplishments. We transformed a small closet into a state-of-the-art Interactive Learning Center, brought interactive technology to the classrooms, ushered in robotics and drones, and built a beautiful makerspace to capitalize on the creative spark in every child.
After hard work and perseverance, we received the National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence Award in 2016, a testament to the high distinction of an OLPH education. I’ve been able to watch your children and mine thrive in the classrooms, on the stage, and on the basketball courts, and I have worked hard to be a support to them in their triumphs and in their struggles. Most of all, I have enjoyed helping them to grow closer to the Lord in faith each day and closer to each other as a community, a school family, rooted in Christ. The support I have received from families has always been tremendous, as it is your love and care of your children and the school that has propelled us forward.
I will cherish the relationships that we’ve forged and hope you will pray for me in this future endeavor. My family and I intend to remain active in the community, so please tell your children that I’ll still “see them around campus.”
Peace and all good,
