Principal's Message

Principal's Message Image
As an educator I believe that education has a monumental value upon whoever strives to gain it. With this goal intact, one would never look back towards a future without an education. As a pupil, I can only assume this intangible reward would only benefit ones future and never hinder nor be hindered by ones' lack of knowledge. Education should be sought after by any human being with the capabilities to acquire, accumulate, process, and reiterate information. Therefore, with these aspects one will go to great lengths to obtain an education that is in such a close proximity.
 
I truly believe that an education is as essential to ones' life as the nutrient water. I cannot imagine living in this world today without an education. Each day one is surrounded by examples of how quickly technology is progressing and altering. A simple trip to the grocery store now requires a person to complete a sales transaction by a using electronic touchscreen interface. I believe all children should have a strong educational background to become productive and responsible citizens. I also believe knowledge is power because it enables an individual to make informed decisions that can affect not only their life, but others as well.
 
Here at Pleasant Run Elementary I have had the fortunate opportunity to embrace the culture of the community, school, and the students that I truly glorify to astonishing levels. Pleasant Run Elementary is not a place where we come to work; it is a place where individuals make dreams happen in real time. We invite you to step into the doors of Pleasant Run Elementary and feel the magic as one walks through the halls of this campus.
 
Proud to be Your Principal,
