J. Watson-Bird-AP

I have held the position of Assistant Principal at Thornton Jr High since the 2016-2017 school year, and, prior to that, I taught English here beginning in 1998. Additionally, I was also a student here from 1980-1982, so I am a Thunderbolt through and through. 

I feel extremely grateful and humbled to be given the opportunity to continue to be part of the Thornton community and to work with these awesome young adults as they navigate their way to graduation and beyond.  

My goal when interacting with students is to act and speak to them in a way I would want someone to act and speak to my own kids while they are at school. I use restorative conversations whenever possible and try to help them understand empathy and where and when certain behaviors and actions are appropriate. 

Please feel free to reach out to me if there is anything I can do to help bridge the connection between home and school.

Happy Retirement, Mrs. Renoir
Best Halloween ever
