A Message from Our Principal

Dear Nathan Hale Families,

Hello, and welcome to the 2023-2024 school year!  I am so incredibly excited to be afforded the honor and privilege of serving the Nathan Hale Elementary School Community as your principal. 

I have had the privilege of working for Meriden Public Schools for the past seven years and have enjoyed every minute of getting to know the children and families at Nathan Hale. I am committed to ensuring that all of our students are provided with a high-quality education in an environment where our students, families, and staff feel welcomed, valued, and respected. 

I vow to lead as a partner, an active listener, and most of all, as a strong advocate for children and the dedicated teachers and staff who work passionately in support of their academic and social-emotional growth. At Nathan Hale, students will always be at the forefront of the decisions we make as a school. 

I firmly believe Nathan Hale has the best students, families, and staff! I am excited about continuing the great work we've started at Hale and working together towards great accomplishments in support of your children. Please reach out to share thoughts, questions, or feedback at any time. I wish everyone a school year filled with health, happiness, and success!
