I take a great sense of responsibility being entrusted with the physical, emotional, and mental health of students at Haviland Avenue School.  I believe that health and intellectual development of children are inextricably related; therefore, my goal is to strengthen and facilitate the educational process by improving and protecting the health status of children and staff.

Students do not exist solely within the confines of the school environment, but are affected by their interactions and associations with family, community, and world events.  I strive to view each child as a whole composition by encompassing his/her unique and varied experiences. While it may seem you only hear from me when your child is physically sick, in need of an immunization, vision or hearing evaluation, please know that I am concerned and interested with all aspects of your child's well being.  Please, don't hesitate to call me to discuss any situation or medical issue that may affect your child's school success.
