Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year! 

I want to extend to you and your family a very warm welcome to Aspire Online Academy. I am proud to serve as the principal of AOA. Our school is founded on the belief that all students can achieve academic success when given a positive learning environment, a committed and focused educational team, an encouraging community, and a supportive family. Our strong partnership between home and school will help foster greater success for our children. As your principal, it is my sincere pleasure to work with our dedicated staff and community to help provide an excellent educational experience for our students. We are committed to ensuring that your students receive the best support to learn and grow. We will continuously reflect and improve our instruction to stay relevant to ever-changing student needs.  

I truly believe that the prerequisite for a successful educational journey and future is a solid foundation in relevant learning skills, both academically and socially. My vision is to provide students with an educational experience that inspires and motivates them to be lifelong learners and caring contributors to the rapidly changing world around them. 

As we embark upon this new year, it is imperative we continue building a strong structure of learning, collaboration, communication, and academic growth. We are embracing the change necessary for our students to have educational choices and diversity in learning.

I am excited about the opportunity to work with you and your child to provide a safe and productive learning environment. This year, visibility in learning is a priority for me and the AOA team. You will see more opportunities for communication, interactions, and academic support rendered in a variety of ways for the benefit of your learner. Every action and interaction we complete will support our school’s mission, promote our inclusive culture, and ensure positive educational experiences for each of our students. I encourage you to share your ideas, concerns, or questions as we transition into our daily learning routines and practices. I wish your family, and especially your students, great success this school year.

Thank you for being a part of our AOA community!
