Greetings Parents and Families of Norwood Public School,

Welcome back! We hope you had a wonderful summer and are ready for another exciting year at NPS. As we continue our journey towards academic excellence I am extremely excited and honored to have this opportunity to work alongside the amazing staff, students, and parents of the Norwood community. 

The role of the principal is multi-faceted, but my primary goal is to help support your children as they become lifelong learners and leaders in and out of the classroom. Through rigorous classwork, clubs, co-curriculars, and athletics, every student has the opportunity to make a difference in our building. I strongly believe in a TEAM approach. With this in mind, we'll work together, embrace innovation, and ensure Norwood Public School provides our students with an engaging and exciting school experience

I am extremely excited to serve as a leader at Norwood Public School. Please feel free to contact me via email or make an appointment to meet in person if you have any questions or concerns. Whether at sporting events, before, during, and after school, or at fundraising events, I am always here for you. 

We Are Norwood!
