The Dedham community is special to me. Not only have I been at this school going on 38 years as an educator, I attended Dedham School from Kindergarten to grade four before moving to Bangor. I moved back to the community in 1977; two years after starting my teaching career here at the Dedham School. I began as a Title I tutor, taught Kindergarten through grade three and served as the Assistant Principal before assuming the position of Principal in 2003. As the 2014 - 2015 school year begins I am beginning my twelfth year as Principal of Dedham School. I feel I know the school and community well and believe we have the best school, staff and students in the state. I am excited about beginning another school year. I want to assure you we strive to do what is best for students and put them first in the decisions we make. I look forward to working with the staff, student, parents and the community throughout the upcoming school year.
