"If we teach today's students as we taught yesterday's, we rob them of tomorrow." ---John Dewey
Welcome to our school’s website. Student learning and success is my main focus as the Director of Instruction and Special Education at Panama. Strong leadership is critical to ensure that the school community’s focus is on instructional needs and data driven instruction. As we continue to navigate the ever-changing educational regulations, standards and evaluations, I hope to provide the support and resources necessary for our students and staff to be successful. Our students are receiving instruction on how to read for information and write in every subject. These are transferable skills that the standards require our teachers to teach our students in order to be College AND Career ready. My philosophy is driven by my commitment to facilitate and lead administrators, faculty and support staff to work collaboratively to ensure the success of all students. I am honored to be a member of the Administrative team at Panama. Our students and staff continue to amaze me everyday as they strive for excellence in the classroom, on the court, on the field and on the stage! PCS is an amazing place to be!
