Principal’s Message

Dear Parents, Guardians and Students,

It is an honor and a privilege to be a part of the Maya Angelou Elementary school community. This year has been an unprecedented year as we faced the challenges incurred by the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, there have been many changes, but what has not changed is our commitment to nurturing, supporting, and educating every student.

This year we are celebrating the 25th anniversary of the school and our theme is “And Still We Rise, Celebrating 25 Years.” I look forward to forming collegial partnerships with you as we work together to ensure that every child becomes a life-long learner and reaches their academic potential through enriching curriculum, engaging hands-on activities, and inspiring teachers and staff.

The administrators, faculty and staff work diligently every day to provide rigorous relevant curricula for our students, in a safe learning environment. As such, we are working meticulously to ensure that the school is safe for the return of our students, teachers, and staff. If at any time you feel that the service you receive does not meet district standards, I urge you to contact my office at (305) 636-3480. Our goal is to provide service that reflects a culture of learning, caring, respect, and quality.

It is my heartfelt privilege to serve as the Principal. I sincerely believe that a school environment that is collaborative draws on the strength of all stakeholders and fosters a positive school climate that makes a difference in the lives of our students. I look forward to meeting and working with you to continue the tradition of excellence. If we can be of assistance please do not hesitate to contact us. We are here for you.
