Beachmont Administration

The Beachmont Veterans Memorial School is an urban seaside community located just 7 miles north of Boston.  The school was built in 1979 as a kindergarten through grade 8 building. Currently we are a K-5 school with several special education classes as well as an Integrated Early Childhood classroom.

Our school is multicultural and diverse with a population of approximately 380 students with a staff of over 50 faculty and personnel. Although there have been several changes in the school’s configuration since the building served as a “swing space” when new schools were being built, our commitment to quality teaching and learning and our focus on student achievement remains constant.

The Beachmont Veterans Memorial School promotes educational excellence and academic standards aligned with the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks and will continue to align itself to the new Common Core. All members of our school community are encouraged to strive for academic achievement and personal growth in a learning environment that encourages and fosters positive self esteem.  We promote learning that is meaningful and recognize individual learning styles.  We provide our students with differentiated learning instruction and cooperative educational experiences.  Our school community is dedicated to nurturing a learning culture where students exercise mutual respect, take risks, and attain knowledge necessary to prepare them to become socially responsible citizens and life long learners.

Working with an understanding of clear expectations for excellence, we celebrate our achievements and hard work.  Respect and responsibility are our watchwords as we work with our students to become contributing members of their community.

As I enter my 4th year of principal of this wonderful learning community, I continue to be amazed by the hard work, dedication, and commitment of teachers, staff, students, and parents.  At the Beachmont, our motto is good, better, best.  Never let it rest until your good is better, and your better is best.  That means a growth mindset is central to the work of every adult and child.  We work hard to become great.  We devote time, energy, and effort to becoming better students, better teachers, and a better community.  We believe that no matter who you are or what your circumstances were, you will find caring adults who will nurture you and help you to fulfill your potential.  Being the leader of such a wonderful school is my greatest professional joy.  Welcome to the Beachmont.  We know you will soon agree that this is a special place to learn and grow!

As the Assistant Principal of the Beachmont Veterans Memorial School, I am proud to work in the community in which I grew up and currently reside. After graduating from Revere High School, I attended Lesley University, where I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Education and a Master’s Degree in Curriculum Instruction in Literacy. Additionally, I hold a CAGS in Administration from Salem State University. I have worked in the Revere Public Schools for over ten years, as a teacher in the 1st and 4th grade, a math interventionist, as well as a math coach and administrator. My goal is to ensure that the Beachmont is a fun, safe place where each student has the opportunity to learn, to grow and to succeed.
