Dear Sayre Community,
I am humbled, honored and delighted to join the Sayre Language Academy family! I am committed, in collaboration with educators and families in this community, to move Sayre forward!
I am excited at the prospect of working with so many gifted and talented members of the Sayre community. With vision, determination and commitment, we will strengthen our beloved neighborhood school. As an educator with 13 years of experience in Chicago Public Schools, I can attest to the demands, pressures, thrills and rewards of educating a child. Realizing Sayre’s potential and tapping into its resources will be our collective mission.
Because of my passion for and experience with curriculum and instruction, I am excited about teaching and learning at Sayre. I look forward to working with you in strengthening our students’ learning experience both at school and at home. Please know that I view our work together in putting children first is one marked by inclusion, collaboration and communication. I hope that I will come to know each and every one of you as an integral part of the Sayre fabric and look forward to connecting professionally and personally. I truly believe that it takes a very large and strong village to raise a child. As a first generation Nigerian-American, I am the product of a strong educational foundation and securing that same right for the students at Sayre is my number one priority. I trust that the road ahead will be filled with more successes than challenges and I am thrilled to be taking this journey with you. Please know that my door is always open and that I welcome your input.
Let us prepare our minds and hearts for what promises to be an exciting year at Sayre Language Academy!
We Are…Sayre Strong!
