I am honored and excited to be a member of the East Prairie family, Go Hornets!  East Prairie Middle School has an excellent reputation of high achievement and we will continue to set high, achievable standards for our students and staff.  We do many things well but will continue to look at our curriculum and programs to remain growth-minded as we pursue the best education for our students.

Our staff is focused on the achievement of students and consistently uses data to help make decisions that are best for our students and stakeholders.  We have three simple concepts:  Be Respectful, Be Responsible, and Be Safe.  Our staff and students use these statements as guiding phrases in order to help our students develop in the classroom as well as socially and emotionally.  
With the help of all stakeholders in the Tuscola community, we know that this year is going to be a tremendous year for all of our students and faculty.  

I am looking forward to partnering with each of you to make decisions that are always best for our students!

With optimism and enthusiasm!
