Dear Students and Families,
I am so pleased to welcome you to AIM Academy! Whether you are a current parent seeking the latest news or a prospective parent who is just learning about AIM, this site can help you learn more detailed information about what makes AIM Academy a unique, vibrant, joyful place of learning.
Although this is my first year at AIM Academy, I have been an educator for the past 18 years. I love to learn and to work with children, and I completed my undergraduate degree in Biology at Harvard before pursuing graduate work in education at both George Washington University and Bank Street College. I have worked as a classroom teacher, reading specialist, learning specialist, and school administrator, and I feel fortunate to have a job that I love. At AIM, I am honored to work alongside a team of incredibly talented, committed, growth-minded educators.
When I first came to AIM Academy as a candidate for the Lower School Head position, I was amazed by the evidence of powerful, multi-sensory learning and creativity everywhere I looked. From student-created medieval manuscripts to essays to models of math equations to colorful murals, student work makes the hallways of AIM come alive. In classrooms, I observed students who were highly engaged in their learning, led by skilled teachers who planned lessons and activities using research-based academic instruction. AIM Academy is an amazing place, and I encourage you to explore our website and reach out to us to learn more.
