Director’s Message

Greetings South Dade Technical College Faculty, Staff & Students: 

It gives me great pleasure to serve as the principal of South Dade Technical College for the 2022-2023 school year! I am honored to have the opportunity to lead an extremely dedicated and diligent staff as well as students who persevere towards greatness! South Dade Technical College has been a beacon of light in the community for over 50 years. We have served as a pathway for students to further educate themselves and position themselves for career advancement. 

As a Career Pathways institution, South Dade Technical College offers over ten Career & Technical Education programs, English to Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) courses, Adult Basic Education (ABE) courses, Adult High School classes as well as Credit Recovery classes. In alignment with our district’s initiative, we create opportunities for student success and prepare them to make maximum earning potential in their industry of choice. We have world class instructors who bring years of industry experience into the classroom setting, cultivating the minds of the students they service. Customer service and an experience of excellence is evident with our school support personnel. It is our goal to ensure all stakeholders have a professional and memorable experience when they enter the doors of South Dade Technical College. 

I have been fortunate to be in public education for the past twenty-three years, serving as a middle school teacher, an assistant principal, a vice principal and now a principal. For the past eight years, I have been an administrator for a technical college, leading the charge for a six-year accreditation reaffirmation. My experience with successfully developing and leading the school-site accreditation team has assisted me with becoming well versed with post-secondary career and technical education and school operations. 

As we embark on a new school year, our theme is, “Impacting the Future, Today!” What we instill in the students we service will have a direct effect on our future. We are training students to become self-sufficient and career ready, not only to obtain employment, but to retain it as well. Every experience we provide our students is to catapult them to the next level in life. As a team, there is nothing too hard for us to accomplish as we move forward towards greater heights. Here’s to a successful 2022-2023 school year!
