I am delighted to introduce myself as the new Principal of St. Bartholomew’s. It is with great enthusiasm and a deep sense of commitment that I join this incredible community dedicated to nurturing the minds and hearts of our young learners. I am honored to have the opportunity to serve as the educational leader of St. Bartholomew’s School and work collaboratively with you to provide the best possible educational experience for your children rooted in the life of Jesus Christ.
First and foremost, I want you to know that my primary focus is the well-being, safety, and growth of every student. I firmly believe that a supportive and inclusive learning environment is essential for children to thrive spiritually, academically, socially, and emotionally. I am committed to fostering a positive school culture where every child feels valued, respected, and empowered to reach their full potential.
With 35 years of experience in Catholic School education, I bring a diverse background that includes teaching, curriculum development, coaching, and leadership roles. My educational philosophy centers around creating engaging and student-centered learning experiences that promote critical thinking, creativity, and a love for learning. I strongly believe in the power of collaboration among students, parents, teachers, and the broader community to create an optimal learning environment. My commitment to Catholic education is to help foster students to have an active concern for others while helping to nurture students to lead lives of significance in service to God and others.
Open communication and strong partnerships between school and home are key to our shared success. I encourage you to actively engage in your child's education, be it through regular communication with their teachers, attending school events, or volunteering in various capacities. Your involvement is invaluable and plays a vital role in shaping our school community.
In the coming weeks, I will be working closely with our dedicated staff to ensure a smooth transition and prepare for the upcoming academic year. I have full confidence in our exceptional team of educators and support staff, who are passionate about creating a nurturing and stimulating learning environment for your children.
I look forward to building a strong partnership with you and your family. Together, we can make a lasting impact on the lives of our students and empower them to become lifelong learners, faith filled, and responsible citizens. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me at Kgiblin@stbartholomew.org if you have any questions or would like to schedule a meeting.
Thank you for entrusting us with your child's education. I am thrilled to embark on this incredible journey with you.
