I proudly serve a diverse population of students and the surrounding community. I believe that school culture starts with respect for other people, honesty, and courtesy and are fundamental expectations for daily behavior practices. These expectations, coupled with an attitude of cooperation and mutual understanding, create an enjoyable and creative community life that extends beyond the classroom. I trust that each parent and scholar will help make this philosophy a reality. It is my obligation to ensure that each scholar will value all learning experiences as they build friendships, matriculate through academic spirit and wisdom, and enjoy being a positive member of the Pershing Middle School student body daily.
