Children are my life as Principal of Manatee School of Arts and Sciences. All decisions I make look at children first. Our entire staff establishes a warm, happy school, full of learning experiences.
Our dedication makes us continually improve and change our program to meet the needs of our kindergarten through fifth grade students. Weekly tours of our school are conducted to welcome new families and visitors to see our safe, secure environment where well disciplined, happy children are learning. Come and see all the extras our school provides to your child.
Co-Founder and Director of School Operations and Finance
I earned my Bachelor of Science Degree in Health Planning and Administration from the Pennsylvania State University. I received my Series 6 and Series 7 Brokers License and worked on Wall Street for the Vanguard Group and Merrill Lynch prior to moving to Bradenton. Mrs. Jolly and I worked together to run a preschool and a strong working relationship and professional bond formed that lead us to the creation of Manatee School of Arts and Sciences. It is my hope that this Charter School is an avenue for children to learn and grow. A safe place where each child feels comfortable and secure enough to ask questions, try new things, and experience learning in an exciting way. Every decision made at MSAS is made with the child at the central part of the decision making process. I believe in our students and I know our school can instill a love for learning, a drive for action, and help them to see their goals become reality.
