It is my great pleasure to serve Discovery Elementary as Assistant Principal for the 2021 - 2022 school year. I look forward to our continued partnership in providing our students with an equitable learning community which excels by building relationships, emphasizing a variety of disciplines, and encouraging perseverance, curiosity, creativity and critical thinking. 

As a public school educator for the past 19 years, I have dedicated my life to the improvement of the educational system. I have always believed it is my responsibility to help all students succeed in school. I have had the privilege of working in a variety of schools and grade levels, providing me with a range of experience. The past six years I have worked at Discovery as the site Literacy Coach and Intervention Specialist. These positions allowed me the opportunity to work with students and teachers in grades Transitional Kindergarten through Fifth grade. Before coming to Discovery, I worked at Knob Hill Elementary teaching in grades Kindergarten, First, and Second. At Knob Hill I also served as an Instructional Coach in grades Kindergarten through Fifth. 

I am excited about the opportunity to continue to serve the amazing community of Discovery!
