Principal's Message

Dear Bronx Compass High School Community,

I am both honored and excited to introduce myself as the interim acting principal of Bronx Compass High School. BCHS is known for its strong culture, supportive environment, and dedication to greatness – and I will support and contribute to this community. In my previous role as the Instructional Lead for Bronx High School Social Studies, I was very fortunate to work with many of you and witness your students and families in action.

I was born and raised in the Bronx and attended local Bronx public schools throughout my K-12 education. Over the past 11 years, I have worked as a teacher and education administrator, fighting hard to achieve equity for the students of the Bronx. I know how important it is for students to receive high-quality education, and I will ensure students receive even better opportunities than I did. Through a shared vision for instruction and belief that all students can and will succeed, we will create ideal learning experiences for our students. By prioritizing rigorous and engaging instruction, we will prepare our students for both personal and professional success.

I know that we have – and continue to – face uncertain times in today’s world. I promise to be here for every member of the Bronx Compass community. I am looking forward to getting to know every member of our amazing community and seeing all of the wonderful things we will accomplish together!
