Hello Mustang Families!
I am entering my 15th year of my awesome experience in the education field. Prior to transitioning into the education field, I found my passion relating to middle-level youth in the field of social work. Many of my years of service have been dedicated to serving students at the middle school level. I have served families, students, and staff in multiple capacities.
I started my journey in education as a middle school science teacher. I was then driven to make a macro impact on the education system to promote equity and opportunity. I have met the needs of students while in the roles of Special Education Coordinator at the building and district level, Dean of Students and Assistant Director of Student Services. My charge and passion in life is to develop an educational experience that supports all students both academically and social-emotionally. Therefore, I returned back to my favorite place at the building level to serve as an Assistant Principal and currently as a your building Principal. I feel strongly about creating experiences and opportunities for students that are endless.
It is a honor to serve the Mustang Family! The 2020-2021 school year is going to be dynamite! Let's make it happen together.
