Welcome! It’s a privilege to share with you. I am a Southwest Missouri native. While I have had ample opportunities to travel the world and experience various cultures, I truly love to call the Ozarks home.
I am currently preparing for my first year as a principal, leaving the classroom after 11 years. I was self contained for four years and departmentalized for seven years.
I have a strong literacy background at the elementary and middle school levels. I am a proponent of the reading and writing workshop model. The last three years I incorporated one-to-one in the classroom allowing greater opportunity for differentiated instruction and PBL.
I love encouraging others to take strategic risks, and step out of their comfort zone. You never know what you are capable of attaining until you try.
