Meet the Principal
Degrees and Certifications:
Red Oak Middle School
Welcome to our school. I cannot tell you how excited I am to be joining you on the next part of your child’s education journey. Here at ROMS we truly feel that we are your partners in education and take that responsibility very seriously.
We realize that leaving elementary and coming to the middle school can be filled with apprehension for parents and students. Our goal as a learning community is to serve as the “bridge” between elementary school and ROMS for both students and parents in an effort to make the transition easier.
Our goal is that students get 1% percent better every day in every area of their lives. We want to focus on the whole child so that our students will have the skills to be empowered in every area of life, not only in middle school, but also the rest of their lives.
Our philosophy at Red Oak Middle School is “Student by student, standard by standard!”
As we walk this journey together this year, please don’t hesitate to reach out to your child’s teachers, the school counselor or our administrative team. To quote a great champion of students, Flip Flippen, “Our goal is your success!”
