Dear Brown School Families,

It is with great excitement that I introduce myself to you as the new Principal of Frank I. Brown School. It is an honor to have the opportunity to become a member of the Brown School family. Throughout the hiring process and interactions with members of the school community I have learned that Brown School is a wonderful place to grow and learn. It is a special school filled with amazing students, a dedicated staff, and a supportive community.

I come to South Portland Schools with twenty-four years of educational experience. My roles as an educator include supporting students and colleagues as a principal, teacher leader, classroom teacher, and educational technician. I earned my Master of Science in Educational Leadership through the University of Southern Maine and my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from the University of Maine. The majority of my teaching career was spent at MSAD 15 where I became the interim principal in 2019. For the last two years I have served as Principal of Poland Community School. I look forward to using these collective experiences as your new principal.
