I have been an educator since the 2000-2001 school year-20 years ago. This journey has been an amazing one. The children have taught me so much about patience, about teaching, about life. I am forever grateful to be able to do what I do. Although this is my eighth year of being an administrator, I have learned so much about myself and that fact that I am still a learner. I have always had the belief that I will never know everything. I am an avid learner and will strive to encourage my students to do the same.
My mission is to help each and every child learn and to grow as a student and citizen. I want the students to understand that mistakes are a part of life and growing up...that these mistakes do not define them. My goal is to make school a safe and nurturing place that allows our students the safety and security to question, investigate and take risks in their learning.
I love to read, to run and to shop!
