LETTER FROM MIDDLE SCHOOL DIRECTOR

Welcome to the Middle School! After 13 years in the classroom and the last six years here at Aspen Academy’s Middle School, I am thrilled to be the Middle School Director of this vibrant, kind, and amazing community. I look forward to continuing to support our students’ learning and the work of our talented and caring teachers in this new role. Our Middle School teacher team has a combined experience of teaching well over 10,000 students. I know that we, as a school community, recognize how exciting and important these adolescent years are and how we can support them and make each student feel a deep sense of belonging.

We support them in our intentional approach to leadership development, building their strengths and awareness of those strengths to make the greatest impact in their home and community. Our academic program is challenging, integrated, and engaging. We promote learning not just in the classroom, but with real world experiences and project-based lessons. The
successful Middle School student isn’t just a student who will succeed in High School, but will succeed inside and outside the classroom and be prepared for life. We can’t wait to work with you all as part of this journey.
