Dear Barcelona Community, Parents, and Students:
Welcome to the Barcelona Middle School family! My name is Paige Brill, and I consider it a privilege to be able to continue to work with the Barcelona community. The 2016-2017 school year will be the beginning of the fifth year being able to help impact the lives of students in the Barcelona community. I have truly seen an impact of change and will continue to build on the foundation of high expectations that has been set to propel our students a school community to greater academic and social success.
The 2016-2017 school year will mark my 13th year in education, all in the Alhambra School District. Over the past 12 years, I have worked in a K-8 school, taught elementary and junior high, been the School Improvement Support Coach at the district level, and have served as the Assistant Principal of Barcelona Middle School. My career as an educator was paved by watching my mother impact the lives of students, as she too, was an administrator, school psychologist, and counselor. Through her efforts, I learned hard work, determination, and that an education is the key to success and beating the odds. I have three beautiful children, whom I want to have every opportunity to succeed. I will treat each of your children as if they were my own and will ensure that they receive the education they deserve that will also afford them every opportunity to academic, social, and lifelong success.
It is my core belief that every child deserves a high quality education, by a highly effective teacher each and everyday. I will work alongside your children’s teachers to create a school with high expectations, students with academic skills that will propel them into the 21st century in order to compete in a global society, and a school that fosters not only academic by social success. Students at Barcelona will be safe emotionally, physically and have all of their needs met. A key factor in a school’s success is in building relationships with students, parents, teachers and members of the community and I look forward to continuing to build those relationships with each and every one of you.
At Barcelona we are building our student’s foundation for success, and we are looking forward to a productive school year where we will be helping every students’ “Dreams take Flight”!
