School Leader’s Message

Dear Imagine School at Broward Family:

Welcome to the 2019 – 2020 school year! We are excited to be an “A” school for the 7th year in a row. I am so proud of Imagine School at Broward and would like to take this opportunity to thank the staff and members of the school community for their support. As an educator for more than 13 years, my goal has been to make a difference and pave the road toward future success for our youth. As a school leader, I hope to motivate, inspire, and encourage staff and students to reach their fullest potential and to learn from them in the process.

Research strongly suggests that families have a major influence on their children’s achievement in school and throughout their lives. When schools support families to be involved at home and at school, students achieve at higher levels. Being a mother of three boys, I can understand the anxiety and concern that parents feel about supporting their child’s progress in school. The staff and I look forward to working with your children and your family to ensure that everyone has a successful academic experience.

We also have many after-school enrichment programs where students can explore varied interests and desires, develop leadership abilities, refine social skills, and, not to mention, have a lot of fun together. Please stop by the front office for more information.

We will continue to have our monthly lockdown drills as well as fire drills, ensuring our students and staff react appropriately may there be a physical threat to our campus. We have a one point of entry at ISAB and have added and upgraded our video surveillance equipment to have expanded views of our external building, entranceway and office. All staff are equipped with radios and have been working closely with the CSPD and other agencies who have provided training and procedures for emergency situations to help ensure the safety of all students, staff and visitors. Staff has also been trained and rehearsed with Stop the Bleed Kits. Stop the Bleed Kits are designed to provide the user with immediate access to products intended to stop traumatic bleeding. Your students’ safety and security are our number one priority. Important updates and directions will always be continuous and shared.

I am privileged to lead such an outstanding school community and I look forward to getting to know each one of you while we work together to make this both a rewarding and successful year!
