Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year!
We are busy getting ready for the upcoming school year! There are many great additions to the program this year including the addition of 8th grade to the Ken-Ton Big Picture Program! We have two new advisors joining our team, as well. Daniel Litz is a new Math teacher and 001 Advisor for the 8th grade students. Matthew Miller joins us as a new Social Studies teacher and Internsip Coordinator. We also welcome Kimberly Sheeran as our Big Picture Office Secretary.
The Big Picture classrooms have been getting renovated and will look brand new for our students this fall. Much of this work was done through grant money from NYS and we are extremely grateful for the funds to provide our students with a high quality learning environment.
I am thrilled to be the Principal at the Ken-Ton Big Picture Program! I have had the pleasure of working in the district since January, 2006. I started in the district as an Assistant Principal at Kenmore West for 4 1/2 years. I then had the good fortune to be hired as Principal of Franklin Middle in August, 2010. The district underwent a reorganization in 2016 and I was able to return to Kenmore West as the Operations Principal for 8th and 9th grades for the 2016-2017 school year. An opening became available at Big Picture at the end of the 2016-2017 school year and I jumped at the chance to join this amazing team of teachers, staff and students. It is easy for me to say this is the best job I have ever had in my career!
The philosophy of Big Picture matches with my own philosophy of education. I look forward to working with each student to help them be successful. Together, we will make a difference for our students. Please contact me with any questions or concerns. My phone number is 874-8403 ext. 32306. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
