Dear Galileo Students and Families,

Welcome to a new school year, 2023-2024!! I am excited to start my second year as the Principal of Galileo Academy of Science and Technology. We have many plans to make this year special for all of the stakeholders, especially for the students. We will be focusing on the following school initiatives:

  1. Enhancing a Sense of Belonging
  2. Building a Positive School Culture and Climate
  3. Improving School-Home Communication Systems
  4. Proactively Addressing  Safety Issues
  5. Starting a 5-year Community Schools Grant Initiative
  6. Expanding the Art Program

These initiatives will not only take some time, but will require all of us to be fully committed to being the agents of change addressing the needs of the entire school community. Galileo is a special space, with over 100 years of traditions and culture. It is our responsibility to not only honor and cherish it; but additionally, to continue to strive to improve the school experience for all.
