I am very pleased that you are a part of our school. I feel that school should be a place where your child can develop qualities that will help them be successful adults.
At Fairview Middle School, parents, administration, teachers, and staff make every effort to establish an excellent atmosphere that is warm, caring, and emphasized educational standards. In an effort to continue this tradition, parents are requested to encourage their children to always put forth their best effort. We can ask no more of our children or ourselves and should expect no less.
Our responsibilities are many, but together we can work jointly to ensure a successful school career for our children. I believe that the attitudes and goals established by our school are in keeping with the high standards of excellence you have set for your child. With your help, our administration, teachers, and staff will do their best to make every school year meaningful and fulfilling for your child. Thank you forgiving us the opportunity to help your child grow and mature!

I am honored to be part of the Fairview family and I thoroughly enjoy working with the children and families of this wonderful district. I am constantly impressed with the time, dedication, and caring provided by the teachers, staff, parents, administration, and school board of Fairview Schools.
My goal is to assist in the development of these children into high quality, productive citizens for our community, state, country, and world. I always attempt to work with our children in one-on-one settings to help them face and conquer the academic and social hurdles presented in a middle school setting, and as they transition into their teenage years.
I have always found middle school students to be amazingly creative, and always ready to take on academic challenges. Our Fairview students are also some of the most accepting and welcoming children, I have ever encountered. They try very hard to be accommodating and respectful toward any individuals they encounter throughout their time at Fairview Middle School. Our children have developed a strong reputation as quality individuals and thus Fairview Middle School field trips are welcomed by groups and organizations in the Tri-State area and in places beyond like Washington DC.
