Dear Academies of Math & Science Flower Family,
It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that I accept the role of Principal for the AMS Flower community beginning January 2019. I look forward to servicing your community. I would like to take this opportunity to intro-duce myself and give you an idea of my personal philosophy regarding the education.
I have 20 years of education experience. Worked nine years as a teacher is the US and Korea. 10 years as a Principal in the American school system and recently was the Director of Academic Programs for an International School in China.
Besides my experience as a Principal, I served eight years in the US military and 13 years with the McDonald’s Corporation before pursuing a career in education.
My philosophy of education is creating a healthy environment that allows each child (student), teacher, parent, staff and community member to learn. In addition, educating people within different cultures and backgrounds while humanizing today’s society throughout the world.
In reference to children (students), I truly believe that children are capable of so much more than we give them credit for. Hard work, perseverance, and dedication to learning are very important to the success of a student, but those things need to be developed through an academic support structure that recognizes the achievements of students and encourages them to do their best.
On that note, it takes a neighborhood of supportive parents, staff and community members to encourage our students inside and outside the classroom.
Again, I look forward to servicing your community and giving you plenty of opportunities to share healthy, fun and educational times with your child during school and community events.
Mr. Christopher Lalley
