**Watch for emails regarding transitioning to High School!**
A Message from our Principal 2020-21:
I would like to take this opportunity to share with you how thrilled I am entering year seven at Pine Ridge Middle School. I have been in education since 1993, starting my career as a Science Instructor at a high school in New York. My first administrative assignment was an Assistant Principal in February of 1999, working in a building comprised of students in Grades 7-12. I received my first position as a Principal in 2003. My educational background includes a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology, Master of Science Degree in Foundations and Teaching, and Master of Science Degree in School Administration as well as a Doctorate in School Leadership.
Pine Ridge Middle School continues to be recognized as an “A” school by the state of Florida. This long-standing recognition is a result of the high expectations held by faculty, staff, students, and stakeholders in our community. We are proud of our diverse student population, with 41 different languages spoken throughout all three grade levels.
My educational philosophy is quite simple… ALL decisions made are based on what is best for the students. One of the driving forces that support my philosophy comes from a famous quote by Theodore Roosevelt: “Nobody cares how much you know, until they know how much you care.” I look forward to working with you and your child in my role at Pine Ridge Middle School.
